ON THE MOVE HAS GONE VIRTUAL!
We at ON THE MOVE are sad that we are unable to offer our usual community ON THE MOVE Program in 2021. We know how important it is to each of us to stay physically active especially during the time of COVID.
Each year ON THE MOVE partners with the local Farmers Market one day to offer a tasting event for the community. The ON THE MOVE partners choose a healthy vegetable recipe to prepare and the farmers market vendors donate all of the produce for the event.
