Family Health and Nutrition

The Family & Community Health program helps build individual assets and environmental supports that protect and improve health. We work with individuals to develop knowledge and skills that help them make healthy and safe choices. We partner with families, organizations, and communities to create healthy and safe environments where people can live, work, learn, and play every day.

In Polk County, the Family and Community Health program includes the following areas of focus: Master Food Preservers, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) and SNAP Outreach. Read more below...
