¡Por Vida!, the popular healthy meal recognition program, has revamped its website, porvidasa.com, to offer a streamlined experience for users in search of healthy restaurant meals.
The new ¡Por Vida! website offers a fresh look in line with the program’s branding. Visitors are able to find out what it takes for a restaurant to be ¡Por Vida! certified in the “qualifications” tab.
The website offers a dedicated page to participating restaurants and allows visitors to browse ¡Por Vida! menu items for each restaurant and learn about the nutritional criteria required to receive the ¡Por Vida! seal of approval.
An interactive map easily guides visitors to the nearest participating ¡Por Vida! restaurant location. Users can check out ¡Por Vida! social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, via the website to stay connected or visit the “news” section to find out about the latest happenings in healthy dining in San Antonio and surrounding areas.
The “Read more about the coalition” link provides visitors a glance at the Healthy Restaurant Coalition that created the program and lists other partners offering ¡Por Vida! meals to their patrons, including Morningside Ministries, Catalyst Catering, among others. The website was generously provided by KGBTexas.
The ¡Por Vida! Campaign was launched in 2009 by The Healthy Restaurants Coalition, a partnership between the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the San Antonio Restaurant Association and the San Antonio Dietetics Association to promote healthier food choices in restaurants and spread good nutrition within the community.
The majority of Por Vida’s 14 partners include traditional restaurants like Jim’s, Luby’s, and McDonald’s. UTSA and Trinity University join Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate headquarter employee café, Lifecare Hospital’s patient dining facility, and Morningside Ministries Senior Living Community resident dining facility as a new unconventional member of the healthy recognition program.
