Healthy Food

Our work in healthy eating is designed to make healthy foods accessible to all. Whether it be through food skills classes, access to farmers’ markets, expanding food assistance programs, or enhancing congregate dining options, we strive to ensure those who live, work, and play in Wright County can find nourishment without difficulty.

Specific objectives include educating and involving children in the selection of healthier food options, encouraging schools to utilize best practices in order for the optimal nutrition to be maintained during lunch periods, and creating an environment that makes the healthy choice the easy choice.

Features

Local food looks better, tastes better, and is better for you. It also supports local families and creates a stronger sense of community. Accessing local food is easier than you might think with the Crow River Food Council‘s hard work.

To help your kids learn about local food, visit a Power of Produce Club this summer!
