About

The ANCHOR (Accelerating National Community Health Outcomes through Reinforcing Partnerships) program is part of a CDC grant to prevent chronic disease and promote health at the community level. Through the ANCHOR initiative, the American Heart Association is working in 15 communities nationwide to reduce smoking, improve access to healthy foods and beverages, and promote physical activity. The AHA will be working in the city of Chester, Pennsylvania on healthy food procurement and farmers markets. ANCHOR will be collaborating with local partners to improve healthy food access through local farmer’s markets, food pantries, and workplaces.  Click here to learn more how the American Heart Association is working to make Chester a healthier environment.
