Central Ohio is our community and we are fully dedicated to improving the lives and health of our friends and neighbors. We offer numerous initiatives throughout the year to help carry out this mission. Many of these events, classes and programs are completely free of charge.

We all want to eat healthy – but there’s no need for our taste buds to suffer. We are here to educate our entire community on ways to eat healthy foods that are equally delicious!
