Upcoming Forum to ‘Build a Healthier South End’

Thanks to a new initiative, South End residents and those working in the comunity will be able to come together next week to share ideas to build a healthier neighborhood. The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC), in partnership with the South End Healthy Boston Coalition, the Boston Alliance for Community Health (BACH), and the Blackstone Community Center, is hosting a special community health meeting in the South End to discuss the health of residents in the neighborhood and to facilitate a strategic planning process to create a healthier community. The meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, at the Blackstone Community Center (50 W. Brookline St.) The meeting is the first in a series of citywide health forums this year. The focus of the meeting is to get those living and working in the communityt o come together to deiscuss ways to build a healthier neighborhood, including promoting safety, reducing crime and decreasing substance abuse.  “We are excited about the opportunity to come together with the community to think about many of the factors that impact health in the neighborhood,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, executive director of BPHC. “We know that understanding and addressing root causes is a must when it comes to making our neighborhoods healthier.” The results of the latest neighborhood-by-neighborhood health assessment are in, and they show the South End is a young, well-educated neighborhood. Over half of residents are between the ages of 18 to 44, and 53 percent of the population has a bachelor’s degree or higher. Adults in the neighborhood are slightly less likely to smoke cigarettes or to have asthma and slightly more likely to exercise regularly compared to Boston overall. However, substance abuse deaths and rates of emergency department visits for nonfatal violence remain challenges for the community. “The coalition looks forward to this opportunity to share the results of our assessment and continue learning from residents from throughout the community about what impacts their health,” said Caitlin Johnson, coordinator of the South End Healthy Boston Coalition. The event is free and open to the public. SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Food Truck Lineup at SoWa Announced for Upcoming Season

The organizers behind the SoWa market have been busy this winter. The 2013 SoWa Open Market will feature its usual open market, vintage market and farmer’s market, and this year, will include an expanded lineup of food trucks, featuring more than 35 different food vendors and restaurants on wheels.  The open market, which will be celebrating its ten year annivesary this year, is open every Sunday from May through October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with several different locations up and down Harrison Avenue in the South End’s SoWa district. The 2013 season will begin on May 5th.  The farmer’s market is located at 500 Harrison Avenue and features produce from local farmers and specialty food vendors. The open market, at 460 Harrison Ave. features work by local artists and crafters who sell unique gift items like jewelry, clothing, toys, pottery and more. The third part of the market is a large, year-round vintage market that features furniture and clothing. And for those with a hankering for a freshly cooked meal, there’s the food truck area in the Trolly Building  at 540 Harrison Ave.  Vendor Scholarships OfferedNew this year to the market is a scholarship program for new and up-and-coming Open Market vendors.  “Many of you started out at SoWa and had wonderful, sharing neighbors that not only gave you helpful feedback, but also become good friends,” the market announced on Facebook. “We’d like to give that same opportunity to up-and-coming makers in the form of a SoWa Open Market scholarship.” The idea is to give those who have been in business for three years or less, and who never had the opportunity to have a booth at SoWa a chance. The scholarship consists of one free booth per month at the SoWa Open Market for a total of 6 markets (a $ 600 value). The recipient will also get advice from market mentors. Applications are due by March 10.  Food Truck LineupAnd now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The following is a full list of all the food trucks who will be stationed at SoWa from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. on Sundays: Area Four Food Truck Away Cafe Baja Taco Company Benny’s Crepe Cafe Big Moe’s M & M Ribs Biryani Park Bon Me Boston Italian Ice Boston Shuckin Truck Boston Super Dog Boston’s Baddest Burger Clover Fast Food Del’s Lemonade Frozen Hoagies Fugu Truck Go Fish LOBSTA LOVE Mei Mei Street Kitchen Momogoose Mother Juice Culinary Cruisers Paris Creperie Roxy’s Grilled Cheese South End […]
