Food & Nutrition

Eating right and being physically active are keys to staying healthy throughout life. Your nutrition needs change with age. Familiarize yourself with the foods that offer the vitamins and minerals that promote good health as we age.

Feel your best by learning how to make healthy food choices – especially those that are lower in calories and packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients – and by being physically active every day.

SNAP (formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) is a federal nutrition program. The program provides benefits in the form of a debit card, which can be used by low-income people to purchase the foods they need to be healthy.
