Central Brooklyn faces a very real health crisis with some of the highest rates of heart disease and diabetes related deaths in New York City and seven out of ten adults overweight.  Through the Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn, Restoration is driving the efforts of some 100 community based organizations in order to address health disparities that disproportionately impact low income communities of color across the borough. Our goal is to promote healthy eating and active living across Brooklyn. Activities include increasing access to affordable, locally sourced, nutritious foods, providing free exercise classes and healthy cooking demonstrations, and educating the community with regards to their own health and wellness.
