KC Healthy Kids

Shop & eat local this Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is coming upon us! Families gather around the table to catch up and be thankful of having one another, new life events being celebrated… will you be shopping local this thanksgiving? There are several places in KC where to get your local produce from! Our friends at KC Healthy Kids know the importance of supporting our local farmers, and showing our appreciation for all their hard work. They have created a list of local Carrot Gold grocery partners to help you with your holiday food shopping list.

Which is your favorite store to support from their list?

Are you familiar with KC Healthy Kids? No? Well, we think it’s time for you to check them out! Since 2005 they have work tirelessly to improve access to affordable fresh food and safe places to walk and play. When our neighborhoods support healthy habits, we are less likely to suffer from obesity, which is linked to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and poor mental health. They are helping KC shape policies that improve our food system and physical surroundings, and, ultimately, the places where we live, work, learn, and play. And you know what? What better time to start than right now, when we’re kids so that when we grow up, we already have these wonderful habits and resources at our disposal?

One of the new initiatives from KCHK is Carrot Gold, which is setting the standard for excellence in food service. This customizable program lets restaurants like ours alongside grocers, hospitals, colleges and corporations move toward an ideal operating standards in three categories: local food sourcing, sustainable kitchen practices and healthy eating.

We’re very proud to be featured in one of their articles about our commitment and work with their Carrot Gold Standard!
