On Monday, September 21, the James City County Human Services Center on Olde Towne Road will transform into the land of Healthier Lifestyle Choices.  

 

Between 9:30 a.m. and 12 noon, participants will begin their journey at The Villas of Learning New Lifestyles where they will learn about healthier lifestyle choices.  They will continue on to Taste and See Island for cooking demonstrations and recipes. The first 50 eligible participants (see the table below for maximum income limits) will receive a box of groceries provided by the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula.  The final destination is the Receivin’ Resort where ‘travelers’ can sign up to receive their box of USDA Commodities and free produce.

 

The entire ‘trip’ takes about 20 minutes, although participants are encouraged to travel at their own pace.  ‘Passports’ will be stamped as participants complete their travels each month.  Those who complete all six ‘trips’ through the Land of Healthier Lifestyle Choices willreceive a special incentive gift.

 

The Human Services Center is located at 5249 Olde Towne Road.

 

Additional journeys are scheduled for the third Monday of every month through June 2010.

 

Passport to Healthier Lifestyle Choices is offered through a partnership between James City County Social Services, the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula and Virginia Cooperative Extension
