COVID-19: Food Education Resources

In light of the current stay-at-home orders related to COVID-19, many Montgomery County food educators have created new online programming to help residents eat well and stay active while at home. The Montgomery County Food Council has compiled a list of the food education and health education resources that are currently available online to help County residents stay healthy and safe during COVID-19. Our sincere thanks go to our many food and health education partners for adapting their programming to meet resident needs during this unprecedented time! 

If you are aware of additional food/health education resources in the County that are not captured below, please contact mcressall@mocofoodcouncil.org.
