Coronavirus (COVID-19)

There are many new nutrition-related challenges during COVID-19, including grocery shopping, food safety concerns, food preparation ideas and nutritious food suggestions to support and improve our overall health. There are many services and resources that are now available to improve food accessibility and availability, especially for those who are in need of some additional support during these challenging times of COVID 19 restriction.

We have included a variety of nutrition resources on our webpage to help navigate some of the newly changed or updated criteria of organizations and programs that normally provide services. We have also developed additional fact sheets, brief videos and recipes to provide ideas and options that are centered around shelf stable foods and food safety.
