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:

  • Free computer diet analysis
  • A Cent$ible Nutrition cookbook
  • Plus many other gifts.
  • Nutrition and cooking lessons adapted to your needs.

 

What is the cost?

Classes are free to those who are willing to invest time in their future. A nutrition educator will help you design a plan to meet your needs. Classes last 1 to 2 hours a week for 5 to 14 weeks.

Become a Cent$ible Nutrition member, and learn secrets to:

  • Invest your food dollars in the best nutrition choices
  • Stretch your food dollar to last the whole month
  • Choose foods lower in fat and cholesterol
  • Prepare low-cost meat dishes in tender, delicious ways
  • Recognize advertising techniques that encourage you to spend more
  • Increase calcium intake by including more calcium-rich foods in your diet
  • Plan meals your family will enjoyAlter recipes so they are lower in fat, sugar, and sodium
  • Protect your family from foodborne illnesses
  • Save time, energy, and make new friends!

 

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.
