March is National Nutrition Month, which invites everyone to learn about informed food choices and develop healthy eating and physical activity habits. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health. We are all unique with different bodies, goals, backgrounds, and tastes! A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist can tailor a healthful eating plan that is as special as you are.

+Cook and Prep: Learn skills to create tasty meals to share and enjoy

+Meal Planning: Enjoy eating healthfully at school, work, and home

+Vary Your Diet: Eat a variety of nutritious foods every day

+Visit an RDN: See a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Working Food offers open air and online farmers markets on alternating Thursdays, 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM to you get access with fresh produce from local farmers. 


HealthStreet continues to serve you with our dedicated Community Health Workers (CHWs). This week our team will be at the following locations, in addition to other places:

Each week, CHWs are all over the city providing FREE health resources, like Deterra™ Deactivation Bags and NARCAN® Nasal Spray, blood pressure checks, referrals, help you know which research studies you may be eligible for, and sign you up to become a HealthStreet member.
