Marshall County

Health and Nutrition

Kansans increasingly seek information about their food and nutrition needs, about how to prepare easy and nutritious meals, and about physical activity. Helping Kansans eat healthier 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. In order to prevent foodborne illnesses, K-State University scientists and educators present information on safe food handling practices for the benefit of Kansans.
