The coalition’s vision is a healthier Monroe County, one bite at a time.

The coalition’s mission is to build a healthy community through a comprehensive initiative to promote good nutrition and access to healthy foods.

The Nutrition Coalition holds meetings virtually on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 1:00pm-2:00pm. Meeting minutes from 2022 can be found below:
