Leavenworth County

Health, Nutrition, and Food Safety

More and more Kansans have the need for accurate information about nutrition and health relationships, about how to prepare quick, easy and nutritious meals, about food safety and quality and about physical activity. Helping Kansans eat more healthfully and increase physical activity can improve their quality of life now and in the future and reduce health care costs. Learning to eat healthfully can also stretch food budgets.
