Nutrition, Health, and Wellness

K-State Research and Extension Education is your practical, up-to-date resource for healthy eating and active living in Sedgwick County.  

Making the healthy choice is not always the easy choice.  Busy families, lack of time and food resources can make meal planning and preparation a chore.  Information is available online or in an informal classroom setting. 

Programs we offer
  • Dining with Diabetes - Participants will learn how to manage diabetes through proper nutrition and physical activity while taste testing healthy recipes.
  • Preserve it Fresh, Preserve it Safe - This day long hands on class covers pressure canning, water bath canning, dehydrating and freezing garden produce for future use.
  • Walk Kansas - This springtime program encourages participants to get active and take a virtual walk around our great state.

Test Your Pressure Canning Gauge for Free - Please call 660-0100 before you come.
