Healthier Somerset is a longtime advocate for Complete Streets, a New Jersey Department of Transportation program that supports roadways designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.
“Complete” streets encourage physical activity by making it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. Instituting a complete streets policy ensures that agencies routinely design and operate the entire right of way to enable safe access for all users.

BOUND BROOK – The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to be part of a collaborative effort with Healthier Somerset and Duke Farms in Hillsborough to deliver fresh produce to the Bound Brook Salvation Army Food Pantry.
The need to increase fresh produce in local food banks and pantries was identified by Healthier Somerset, a coalition that works to improve the health of Somerset County residents and employees, in their Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Through a New Jersey Healthy Initiatives grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Healthier Somerset is working to create a culture of health in Bound Brook and South Bound Brook.

You can stay on track by continuing to add fruits and vegetables to your diet even as the seasons change.
