Access to nutritious, affordable, and culturally relevant foods is important for overall health and well-being. Eating well can play an important role in preventing chronic disease, providing enough energy to carry out daily activities, support mental well-being, promote growth and development in children, and much more.
There are also many resources for people to get access to healthy foods in Carver County, even if you have financial limitations.
