Fall is finally here & we’re looking back with pride.
This summer was an exciting time for us! We opened our first two storesin the Philadelphia suburbs, #suburbansquare and #radnor! We wanted to take this opportunity to give back to the community that has supported us so much by partnering with CHOP’s Healthier Together program.
We were proud to choose this program as a beneficiary of our opening days, because we believe every child deserves a shot at a healthy and happy future. Because of YOU, our customers, today we’re able to donate over $5k to this wonderful initiative that uses every dollar to make a difference in the lives of local children.
Thank you for supporting HipCityVeg. We look forward to continuing to build a stronger community together!
More on Healthier Together
Healthier Together, launched in 2019, is CHOP’s initiative to tackle the social determinants of health as a path to improving the health of children. We know we can’t do this work alone — Healthier Together will partner with community groups, nonprofits and government agencies to learn from each other and multiply the impact of the work.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) commitment to improve the health of children extends beyond the walls of our hospital and 60-plus CHOP Care Network locations.
Why? When it comes to a child’s overall health, medical care accounts for only about 20% of the factors that have an impact. That means that up to 80% of a child’s health is linked to behaviors (like exercise, diet and smoking), socioeconomic factors (income and education) and environmental factors (housing and community safety). Collectively, these nonmedical factors are called the social determinants of health.
