Have you heard? FAST is proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Blue Zones Project participating organization!
So what does that mean?
Blue Zones Project is a community-led well-being initiative designed to make healthy choices easier in Fort Worth through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. When our entire community participates – from worksites and organizations to restaurants and grocery stores – the small changes add up to huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and ultimately, a higher quality of life.
FAST is playing an important role in this well-being initiative by achieving Blue Zones Project Approved status. Some of the initiatives we have implemented to earn this designation include offering healthy, nutritious food options at meets, discouraging consumption of soda and sweetened beverages, and organizing events to encourage new relationships.
