    Waltham Walks Kickoff

Welcome to Healthy Waltham!

“Bringing Waltham together for the health of our community”

Healthy Waltham was born out of the need for the people of Waltham to come together for the health of our community. Formed as a community coalition, we started with a small grant to look at ways to improve health in Waltham and a second grant focused on increasing fruits and vegetables served in school cafeterias. Since then, our work has evolved and grown. We have reached thousands of people through partnerships and collaborations; outreach events; youth and children’s programs; cooking demos and nutrition education; community walks; school and community gardens; and so much more.

You can often find us working with kids, recent immigrants, and low-income groups, although everyone can benefit from learning about healthy lifestyles. In recent years we were proud to support the City of Waltham in joining “Let’s Move,” a nationwide initiative focused on childhood obesity. We believe that people can lead healthier lives with encouragement and education.

In summer of 2013, we became a 501(c)(3) corporation, breaking off from our longtime fiscal sponsor, the Waltham Partnership for Youth. Won’t you help us continue our work for another 10 years with a tax-deductable contribution? Thank you for your interest and support!
