Senior Needs

Healthy Haralson is working to increase access to resources for senior citizens in an effort to improve their independence and quality of life.

The committee made one step toward this goal by joining forces with Honda Precision Parts of Georgia in Tallapoosa. On June 15, 2018, 76 volunteers from Healthy Haralson, Honda Precision Parts, Keep Haralson Beautiful (KHB), R.K. Redding Construction, The Blake House and the county’s 4-H Club planted community gardens and flowerbeds at three senior centers during Honda’s “Week of Service.”

The event not only increased access to healthier food options for the county’s residents, but it also helped increase physical activity for senior citizens and other community members who help maintain the gardens and flowerbeds.

Healthy Haralson also hosted a six-week Cooking Matters class at the Bremen Senior Center where 25 seniors learned how to prepare healthier meals on a budget.
