Information and resources that support your role in caring for a loved one.

Eating healthy is important for the people we care for and for caregivers themselves. But finding nutritious, affordable food can be challenging, especially when balancing all of the other duties that come with caring for a loved one.
One source of healthy and delicious food that is often overlooked are the many local farmers’ markets that are held regularly throughout the summer and fall. These farmers’ markets offer access to locally grown produce and other nutritious offerings at reasonable prices. Many even accept SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as food stamps).
