Take Charge Windsor Essex Banner - Supporting Healthy Choices

Take Charge is helping Windsor-Essex County residents eat healthy at local recreation centres! 

People, who engage in physical activity, whether it is recreational or competitive, require adequate fuel in the form of fluids and nutrients to ensure their best performance.  Recreational facilities often serve as community hubs where individuals and families may spend many hours being physically active and sharing meals.

What are we changing?

Take Charge is making nutritious food and beverage choices more available, visible, and affordable at canteens and concession stands. In other words, we want to create opportunities for people to make healthy choices.

Some examples of healthy nutritious food and beverages now available in Take Charge locations include:

  • Fresh fruit smoothies
  • Fresh fruit
  • Vegetable wraps
  • Fresh vegetables and dip
  • …and much more! 

Participating Recreation Centres are:

  • Tecumseh: Tecumseh Recreation Complex and Arena
  • LaSalle: The Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex
  • Amherstburg: The Libro Credit Union Centre
  • Leamington: The Leamington Kinsmen Recreation Complex

Look for the Take Charge logo at participating recreation centres and ask for the Take Charge food and beverage option!

Each centre will be offering a Take Charge loyalty program where patrons will receive a Take Charge drink tumbler after the purchase of eight Take Charge choices.
