Parents, students and community members are all welcome to be a part of Northfield’s Wellness Team, a partnership with the Be Well Health and Wellness Initiative at the Foundation for Sustainable Urban Communities. The program was established to organize, implement and assess healthy living projects at local schools — because healthy schools create healthy communities!
The Wellness Team meets from 6-7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month. Anyone interested in health — physical, mental, nutritional, etc.. — is welcome. The team’s current projects include an effort to hold free, monthly fitness classes open to the community, build a wellness center for students and faculty, and increase the use of a healthy vending machine at school.
