Community Health Programs
MetroWest Moves is a regional Mass in Motion program to facilitate opportunities for people who live, work, and play in Hudson, Framingham, Marlborough, and Northborough, to engage in healthy eating and active, smoke-free living. Hudson Health Department is the lead agency for this initiative.
Our department also runs the Hudson Farmers' Market, located behind the Hudson Town Hall.
