Live Well South Fayette

The Live Well South Fayette Township initiative is committed to promoting, encouraging and enhancing wellness and healthy living. In partnership with Allegheny County's Live Well Allegheny program, South Fayette Township works with business and community partners, including our neighbors in North Fayette Township, to develop programs that support community health and wellness.

Live Well at the Garden

In partnership with neighboring North Fayette, South Fayette Township held Live Well at the Garden events in 2015 and 2017 at the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. The programs welcomed more than 300 residents, as well as township staff and elected representatives, garden board members and volunteers, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, and Allegheny County Health Department Director Dr. Karen Hacker.

Live Well Allegheny Workplaces

South Fayette Township invites local businesses and employers to apply to be designated as a Live Well Allegheny Workplace. To achieve this designation, a business must indicate the intent to work with Allegheny County to accomplish the goals of the Live Well campaign. Live Well Workplaces will be supplied with materials to help show their employees that their personal wellness is a top priority.

Live Well Allegheny Restaurants

South Fayette Township restaurants and food businesses may apply to be designated as a Live Well Allegheny Restaurant. Criteria includes expressing the intent to work along with Allegheny County to accomplish the goals of the Live Well campaign, and commit to at least four action steps such as, for example, eliminating trans-fat oils, being smoke-free, providing calorie counts on menus, and offering healthy options.

Live Well Wednesdays

Live Well Wednesdays provides a weekly opportunity for South Fayette Township to promote community wellness, and for businesses and organizations to offer wellness incentives to the public. For example, a restaurant might offer a deal on salads; a gym could hold a special fitness class; and a massage therapist may offer a service discount. If you plan to offer a Live Well Wednesday deal, please contact Andrea Iglar by email or call 412-221-8700 x231.

Community Supported Agriculture

South Fayette Township encourages local agriculture and fresh foods, by promoting local farmer's markets and serving as a seasonal pickup point for CSA programs that provide fresh produce to subscribers.
