Yavapai - Nutrition Education
The Yavapai County Cooperative Extension provides nutrition education to families and individuals in Yavapai County. We work primarily with young children, their parents/caregivers and seniors through classroom and garden-based education. We strive to connect our community with where their food comes from. We work to support the local food system by increasing knowledge and awareness about farmers markets, gardening, and food production and to improve access to fresh produce. We offer classes about preparing healthy meals, planning meals on a budget, making healthy choices and more. Our work includes serving those eligible under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) by delivering nutrition education curriculum, events, and activities.
