Our Social Responsibility
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
~ Winston Churchill
At Healthier Picks, we are making service to the community our biggest priority. The following are ways in which we hold ourselves accountable to the communities we live in:
Circle of women striving to make health a priority and fitness a habit through walking, biking, and other fun physical activities. Healthier Picks, in conjunction with the Health Partners, plan weekly events where all women are welcome to join. Be sure to visit our Health Partners blog to learn about what we've been up to.
