Nutrition Program

Looking for information about good nutrition, healthier cooking, or where to find better food choices in your community? Then you've come to the right place! We can help you (and your family, friends and co-workers) find, prepare, and share healthier food (and beverage) choices. Call our Registered Dietician at 845-364-2500 for more information. We provide information and resources on the following nutrition topics:

Family Meal
The average family meal lasts barely 20 minutes, but few other settings in family life have such potential to influence children's behavior and development. Eat together - it makes a difference!

Farmers' Markets
Want fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables, picked at the peak of flavor and packed with vitamins and minerals? If your answer is yes, shop at one (or more!) of the many Farmers' Markets in Rockland.
