Find ways to bring healthy to your table

Eating is a very personal endeavor, and, yet, it's also inextricably linked to community: where you shop and what you buy there; who grows your food and where; how much you can afford to spend on food; where you dine out — every food-related choice you make along the way all feed into the health of your community.

When we think about what we put into our bodies and why, about where our food comes from and how that matters, we're connecting a little bit more to our community, changing our thought process around food and becoming more aware. We don't all eat the same, nor should we. But it's instructive — and enlightening — to be able to educate ourselves and open our eyes to the connectedness of consumption.

Here we've compiled a list (by no means complete) of local and national agencies that offer hearty information to help ensure you're a healthy — and educated — food consumer: Note: This information is provided as a resource and does not constitute an endorsement for any group.
