A healthy community is not only mentally and emotionally fit, but physically fit as well! Healthy Communities of Clinton County strive to make the easy choice the healthy choice; including physical health.
Use the myplate method from the United States Department of Agriculture for easy meal planning. Fill half the plate with vegetables and fruit, and the rest with one lean protein source such as beans, fish, lean meat, poultry or soy, and one grain serving, aiming for whole-grain options at least half the time. Instead of sugary drinks, wash the meal down with water or fat-free or low-fat milk. Choosing these foods helps your body get the nutrients it needs to thrive.
There are community gardens located in all of our small towns in the county, along with one at the Healthy Communities location on Rossville Avenue. The garden at our office is open to the public to pick vegetables, weed the garden, or be part of this experience in any way. Be on the lookout for our postings when the vegetables are ready if you would like any free produce! Call (765) 659-6063 for locations of community gardens throughout the county. Food is free to pick!
