MooreFit Starts Newest Program
MooreFit had a good turnout Monday during registration for its latest offering, “Ready, Set, Grow.”
The classes are part of the MooreFit University and center around learning how to grow your own food and exploring local food options.
MooreFit University debuted last fall. It offered various classes in three different disciplines — nutrition and eating, physical activity and overall wellness. The Ready, Set, Grow program is the sixth in an ongoing series of MooreFit initiatives, which began in 2008 as a way to encourage employees of participating companies across the county to eat healthy and exercise.
As part of a continuing effort to grow MooreFit University, a corporate challenge has also been incorporated into this semester’s event.
Businesses and their employees involved in “Ready, Set, Grow” will be challenged to develop workplace gardens.
Each work site will be assigned a master gardener to help them along the way. The best garden will win a prize.
Master gardeners will judge the corporate gardens and select a winner. A charitable donation will be made to the Sandhills branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina on behalf of the winning business.
