Nutrition Education

Nutrition education provides educational information and classes to improve the likelihood that families on a limited budget make healthy food choices and choose physically active lifestyles by acquiring knowledge, skills and behavior changes consistent with MyPlate Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The primary focus is to provide low-income families and children comprehensive nutrition education, a healthy diet, obesity prevention, physical activity and better access to food through FNS.
