Cent$ible Nutrition Program 

What is the Cent$ible Nutrition Program?

It is a federal program funded through the USDA. The program helps low income families eat better for less. Nutrition plays a major role in health. Nutrient-dense foods promote good health and give children energy to learn.

 

How do I become a Cent$ible Nutrition member in Lincoln County?

For the Star Valley Area - Contact Shar Hunsaker, Project Coordinator to set up an appointment. For the Kemmerer Area - Contact Nancy Feeley. They can be reached at the office addresses listed at the bottom of this page. When you join you will receive:

Grilling Safely

Keep foods safe when cooking on the grill. First, keep your grill clean. Before warming it up, scrub it with hot, soapy water.

Just like defrosting meat in the refrigerator, it is wise to marinate meat in the refrigerator. Do not reuse marinade for basting; save and use some of the fresh, unused marinade.

Wash cutting boards and utensils in hot, soapy water and as always, wash your hands.

Use a meat thermometer, just like when cooking indoors. Cooking foods to the proper internal temperature makes them taste better and safer to eat.
