Get Healthy on the Railroad, sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, returns in 2017 to offer five healthy nutrition classes at Railroad Park. Classes will be led by area non‐profits on the park's 17th Street Plaza on the first Sunday of each month from April through August. The first 100 registered attendees will receive free produce and a recipe card so they can easily replicate the dish at home. All produce will be sourced from local farmers through Rev Birmingham's Urban Food Project.
