Nutrition Education Programs

Nutrition education programs and services are available to local school districts including the highly popular Harvest of the Month and Power Play! programs.

Parents are an important link to impacting their child’s health. Nutrition Education staff work to incorporate parent involvement by being available to work with participating school sites on offering nutrition education through activities such as Harvest of the Month tastings and healthy recipe demonstrations at back to school, open house, and family literacy nights.

Our goal is to increase healthy eating and physical activity among pre-K through 12th grade students attending schools within Humboldt County. We aim to provide teachers, school food service staff, students, parents, and community members the tools and resources to support students in making lifelong healthy choices.
