Here are just a few ideas on how to help improve community nutrition:

  • Set up a community garden where families can grow their own fresh produce.
  • Encourage schools to host healthy bake sales.
  • Conduct nutrition assessments on local restaurants or grocery stores. Share results with the managers to show customers want healthy food choices.
  • Collaborate with local restaurants to provide nutrition information on menu items.
  • Find community co-ops near you to bring farm-grown produce to your table.
  • Partner with local media to showcase community nutrition opportunities.
  • Connect schools with local farmers to provide fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
  • Shop at farmers markets for fresh, locally grown foods.
