Produce Pick of the Month

This evidence-based campaign focuses on building fruit and vegetable consumption in children through healthy snacking. Produce Pick of the Month is a monthly nutrition education program for primary grade children in at-risk elementary schools in Clarke and Washoe counties in Nevada. In addition to direct instruction, staff works with school wellness coordinators to build meaningful & sustainable programming to create a well environment in every school. 

SNAP Into Farm Fresh Foods

We teach SNAP recipients how to support local farmers markets by purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables with their benefits. We also work with local farmers market managers, vendors, and other community partners to educate them on the importance of creating a SNAP-friendly environment and provide SNAP-related technical support.
