Parent Nutrition Education Program


Parents have the power!

Are you a parent or do you work with parents?  We have resources for you! 

We offer two series of classes:

Plan, Shop, Save and Cook


Plan, Shop, Save, and Cook teaches adults how to make the most of their food budgets. Learning to use coupons, calculate the least expensive foods, write grocery lists, plan meals, and utilize leftovers is key to stretching your dollars.

Happy, Healthy Families


Happy, Healthy Families teaches parents how to feed their children. By creating consistent schedules, allowing children to serve themselves, preparing only one meal for the entire family, and never bribing or forcing children to eat, you can help young children to trust their hunger instincts and reduce the chances of them gaining too much weight or developing negative eating patterns.
