Heart of Hutch dissolves; activities continue through Hutchinson Health

Heart of Hutch, a grass-roots effort led by volunteers, started in 2010 with the mission of inspiring positive habits, behaviors, and attitudes throughout our community. Hutchinson Health has provided strong support and partnership for Heart of Hutch’s efforts to promote eating smart, moving more, and building social connections.

At the close of 2018, the Heart of Hutch name will dissolve and takes its new form.  As Hutchinson Health increases efforts to improve health and well-being in partnership with its members, patients, and community, many of the programs of Heart of Hutch will continue to be championed by Hutchinson Health in partnership with community volunteers.

Included in Hutchinson Health’s efforts will be community favorites like “One Book, One Community”, “Little Free Libraries”, “Community Events”, and more. Efforts to improve community connections will continue to be led and implemented by community volunteers through the Connect Wholeheartedly Committee, with support from Hutchinson Health.  Move Naturally and Eat Smart efforts will be led by Hutchinson Health and implemented in partnership with individuals and organizations within the community.

For a complete list of community initiatives, events, services, and resources supported or led by Hutchinson Health, visit the Health & Well-Being page at https://hutchhealth.com/health-well-being/.

Simple Salsa

Pico de gallo (pronounced PEEK-oh deh GEYE-oh), which in Spanish means “rooster’s beak,” is simply salsa prepared in the Mexican tradition. Typically made of raw, uncooked ingredients (tomatoes, onion and chiles), pico de gallo adds a layer of fresh flavor over grilled fish or chicken; with fajitas, tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas; in Spanish fried rice and beans; and as a topping for corn chowder or Mexican style eggs (huevos rancheros). Freshly made — rather than store-bought — pico de gallo is also a simple, economical and beta-carotene-rich dip with jicama and zucchini slices, whole wheat crackers, or tortilla chips.
