Healthy eating protects against heart disease, cancer, and obesity. But many Washtenaw County residents struggle to eat nutritious foods. Our programs and partnerships focus on connecting people to community food resources, promoting the benefits of healthy eating, and helping people build the skills and motivation to eat healthier.
Farmers Markets are a great source for fresh, local food. Visit the Washtenaw County Farmers Markets website to find out which farmers markets accept SNAP, Bridge cards (food stamps), Double Up Food Bucks, WIC Project FRESH, Senior Project FRESH, and Prescription for Health.
