National Nutrition Month


Our bodies are our gardens and wills are our gardeners.

William Shakespeare

National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. 

Whether it's starting the day off with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a real difference. Preparing your foods to go even further, by planning meals and snacks in advance can also help to reduce food loss and waste, this year's theme for National Nutrition Month encourages us to achieve the numerous benefits healthy eating habits offer, but it also urges us to find ways to cut back on food waste.

This month we would also like to take the opportunity to highlight agencies, organizations, and foundations within our community that focus on food scarcity resources and nutrition education. Please take a moment to browse our Featured Agencies listed below and discover local resources found within the Community Information Database
