Healthy Living

We offer educational information for Oregon families to meet the practical challenges of daily life. Our programs address critical issues for individuals and families and helps Oregonians become healthy, financially secure, and responsible members of society. Program activities empower and enable individuals and families manage their resources to meet needs for food and nutrition.

Helping Tillamook County Eat Healthy

The Tillamook County Extension Nutrition Education Program helps limited-resource individuals, children, and families learn about the importance of making healthy food choices. Classes are taught in a variety of settings from youth in local public school classrooms to adults at local food pantries or in groups. We teach classes that help learners:

  • Develop skills that promote self-sufficiency
  • Stretch food dollars
  • Handle food safely
  • Learn more about nutrition

We help people plan and prepare quick, inexpensive, and healthy meals. We encourage them to experience healthier living through better nutrition and increased physical activity. Our nutrition education efforts are funded by the SNAP-Ed federal program that provides nutrition education programming to Supplemental Food Assistance Program participants.  

Food Pantry Project

We cooperate with the Tillamook Regional Food Bank to help food pantry recipients make better use of available foods. We show how to prepare nutritious dishes from simple, basic foods available from local food pantries. Volunteers are always welcome to assist with this effort.
