Covington Farmer’s Market: We have recently taken over operation of the Covington Farmer’s Market which provides access to healthy, locally grown food and products to all residents of Covington. For more information, click here. To become a vendor, contact Rachel.
Nutrition: We work to provide access to healthy food in all neighborhoods through our Healthy Corner Store Initiative. We also give residents the tools and resources they need to eat healthy at home through our Home Garden program and nutrition-based educational workshops.
Community Gardens: We help residents create community gardens to grow fresh vegetables and fruits. For more information on our Community Gardens, contact Cate Douglas.
Tobacco Free Northern Kentucky: We work with the Health Department and other organizations to end secondhand smoke in workplaces. This group also supports people in our region who want to quit smoking or using tobacco products.
