March is National Nutrition Month and here at DHEC, we are celebrating healthy eating with food demonstrations and fresh local produce. In Central Office, members of our WIC and SNAP teams recently provided three separate 30-minute engaging food demonstrations using fresh produce from our new mobile Farmers Market service, provided by Jumper Farm.
In addition, the Pee Dee Region recently hosted a Lunch and Learn at the Florence Health Department, with 31 people in attendance. Two registered dietitian staff from the region provided recipes for multiple meals, and also discussed ways to reduce sodium, fat and calories with just a few small changes.
Eating healthy not only feeds your body, it feeds your mind. To find healthy options near you, check out letsgosc.org.
