Live Healthy Vineland: 

Our Y is a partner with the Vineland Health Department working to create a better place for residents to live, work and play.

LIVE HEALTHY VINELAND (LHV) is a partnership of several public and private organizations that aim to make Vineland a healthier place to live, work and play. The initiative is an extension of the New Jersey Partnership of Healthy Kids (NJPHK-V), which was founded in 2009 with co-directorship by the Cumberland County YMCA and the Vineland Health Department through funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. LHV aims to expand the reach and accomplishments of NJPHK-V through a variety of community, school, and work based initiatives.

Live Healthy Vineland's primary focus at this time is the "Community Hub" initiative, taking place in four locations around Vineland:

  • Downtown Deli
  • Vasquez and Diaz
  • Rock of Salvation Church
  • La Unica

These locations host local organizations and businesses offering resources and services to residents who may otherwise not be able to access them. 

Previous successes have included:

  • The Healthy Corner Store initiative; this initiative laid the groundwork for our current "Community Hubs"
  • Safe Routes to Schools; completed four travel plans in conjunction with the City of Vineland and Vineland Public Schools to ensure students had a safe route to get to school when walking
  • Worksite Wellness; 20 companies participated 2015-2018 reaching over 21,000 employees to make their health and well-being a main priority in their daily routine
  • Park Hop series; ran from 2015-2017 with local parks hosting a variety of health and wellness events, such as Yoga in the park, for area residents
  • Healthy Restaurant week; 25 local restaurants participated in highlighting healthy options on their menu, to help make healthier meal decisions
  • Farm to Pantry; worked with 13 pantries and seven local farmers to provide food assistance to over 2,000 families in 2019
