Eat3 Logo

“Eat3” was a campaign to encourage families to Eat Well, Eat Local, and Eat Together. This project was designed to help you choose, prepare, and enjoy healthy family meals using locally-grown produce. Although no longer an active campaign, the resources are still available through the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program website.  The site provides consumers with basic information about the WIC and Senior FMNP programs, as well as recipes with which to prepare seasonal produce, and other resources about nutrition and physical activity.
