KEY (Keystone Empowers You) is a Community Collaborative focused on increasing access to physical activity and healthy food options in the Keystone area.

Goal: A Community where more adults have access to exercise programs - both formal and informal - and are exercising regularly, there is an increased availability of fresh fruits and vegetables in schools, neighborhoods and workplaces, and youth spend less time playing video games or watching television and more time engaging in the recommended amount of daily exercise.

Initiatives: Improving concessions offered during school and community events, a pantry garden to provide residents with access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and physical activity programming in community venues.

Partners: Elyria Public Library System | French Creek Family YMCA | Keystone Pointe | Keystone Schools | LaGrange Lions Club's Food Pantry | LaGrange Park Board | LaGrange United Methodist Church | LaGrange Township | LaGrange Yoga | Lorain County Metro Parks | Lorain County Public Health | Lorain County Volunteer Connection | Penfield Township | Salvation Army | SpaceBound, Inc. | United Way of Greater Lorain County | Village of LaGrange
