Power Up Nutrition Education

  • Each month, Nutrition Services focuses on a different theme to support the teaching of nutrition education. 

October: Eat Local!

Local foods are fresher and seasonal, usually have less environmental impact, preserve green space, promote food apple safety and variety, and support the local economy.

Easy and inexpensive ways to eat local include:

  • Shopping at Farmers' Markets
  • Joining a Community Supported Agriculture co-op
  • Eating seasonal food
  • Freezing seasonal food
  • Growing your own food
