Our mission is to work with communities to provide nutrition and health information, resources, and support to encourage choices for healthy living. Assessments are done to determine a nutrition risk such as anemia, low iron, or a diet with too many or not enough nutrients. Applicants must qualify based on income, residency and nutritional risk.
