About Food and Money

Our nutrition education program provides science-based information to promote a healthy lifestyle free from chronic disease. We teach families and youth healthful ways of eating; where food comes from; how to stretch food dollars; and how to prepare simple, healthful meals.

We also offer two financial literacy curricula, Making Every Dollar Count (for adults) and Money Talks (for Teens) to help residents better handle their resources.
