HEALTHY FOOD POLICY

When you walk into The Market (formerly the Food Pantry) you won’t see shelves of macaroni and cheese, Pop-Tarts, Fruit Loops, and Ramen noodles. Instead you’ll see a counter of fresh produce and shelves of whole grain pasta, dried beans, and low-sugar cereals.

Learn more about the Healthy Food Policy by visiting our Healthy Food Initiatives page and help us fill our Market with fresh, nutritious food by hosting a food drive.
