National Nutrition Month is an opportunity to spread information about nutrition and celebrate our Guthrie nutritionists. One way to “go further with food” this month is to shop locally. Shopping for food locally is an excellent way to add healthy food to your diet while also helping to conserve natural resources. Local food also has a very minimal effect on the environment.
