Dates are:

April 8: 1-2 pm at Ed’s Family Foods

April 14: 10-11 am at Walmart

April 22: 6-7 pm at Burnstad’s 

The dietitian will lead the group through the grocery store identifying healthy options, do some practice with label reading and give participants the chance to ask specific questions. This is a great opportunity to refresh on healthy eating tips, ask questions and learn from a dietitian!

Richland County Local Food Review

We completed our first calendar year of procuring local produce for the Richland County Farm to School program with many successes, challenges and new opportunities. We reflected on 2014 and are excited for what 2015 will bring!

The Richland County Local Food Review looks at the impact of the program on serving local produce in the Richland School District, the Richland County Senior Nutrition Program and at UW Richland . It also shows the impact on the local food economy and the amount of money going into the hands of local growers.

As the program continues to evolve we are looking for more growers to get involved so please share, tweet or ‘like’ this post so we can reach all potential growers in our area.
