Get Healthy, Live Well

Healthy Eating Classes

We want savory, nutritious meals. But translating the images in our heads to the plates on our dinner tables is challenging.

Get Healthy, Live Well offers classes designed to help community members locate sources for fresh, local foods and learn hands-on cooking skills to prepare delicious, healthy meals at home.
