Ma santé en valeur

The Ma santé en valeur (My Health in Mind) committee was set up in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge in 2012. As part of a regional plan initiated by the MRC d’Argenteuil for the promotion of healthy lifestyles, the committee addresses a number of health-related issues.

Bonne santé bonne bouffe: Created in 2013, this intergenerational activity aims to promote healthy eating habits, stimulate children’s curiosity and autonomy with regard to food, and encourage social ties throughout the community and across generations. Come meet us and enjoy a tasty, healthy, economical meal prepared together. The group of volunteers visits a different community centre on the last Saturday of each month, combining children’s activities with community cooking.

Collective kitchens: The goal of the collective kitchens is to provide support for individuals who feel isolated or who are going through a difficult period in their lives. A social, community-oriented activity that brings people together.

Community gardens: Another Ma Santé en Valeur initiative. Groups of citizens organize gardens in several sectors across the municipality.
