Designation Year: 2021
Millcreek wants every resident to have an equal opportunity to be healthy. To achieve this, Millcreek established the Millcreek Promise Program to create a safer, healthier community for all. The Promise Program plans events and service projects to increase access to healthy food, de-stigmatize mental health, and improve opportunities for outdoor recreation. Millcreek installed a futsal court in a portion of the city home to lower-income, immigrant, and refugee populations. Millcreek also partnered with the IRC New Roots Program to promote local food production and incentivize growing culturally appropriate foods. The city website has a resource page to inform residents of opportunities for healthy eating, active living, and improving mental health.
