Obesity and obesity-related diseases and health care costs are a growing problem. The adult obesity rate in Philadelphia is 32.2%; among African Americans, it's 38.4%. Studies show limited access to healthy food choices and lack of exercise are contributing factors to the obesity crisis.
Philly Foragr is a web-based app that promotes healthy living and well-being. Building on the Philly SNAP API developed at RHoK, we are adding public transit directions to supermarkets, grocery stores, etc. We will provide recipes to help make the healthy choice an easy choice. Since exercise is a solution to the obesity crisis, we are providing walking directions with information about historic markers, murals and other places of interest along the way.
