JUMPSTART JACKSON

Healthy Food A Priority


Food deserts are areas lacking of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods usually found in high and middle-income areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers. JumpStart Jackson was created to make Jackson, Tennessee the healthiest city in the state. It’s a community-wide health and wellness initiative that encourages its citizens to eat right, get out and get active.
