Community Engagement

Nutrition Programs

When you eat well, you feel vibrant. Together with our community partners, we offer a number of programs that not only teach you how to eat for your health, but provide access to wholesome and delicious foods.

Sprouts Kids Club 

Between May and October, kids can participate in the Sprouts Kids Club, a free program held on Tuesday’s at the Goshen Farmers Market from 3 to 7 pm. This program helps kids learn about healthy food choices by providing them tokens each week that can be used to purchase fresh produce at the market.

Goshen Health is excited to partner with this program and offer fun, interactive nutrition education and activities each month.  Kids who visit the Goshen Health table on the following dates will earn an additional token to spend at the market:

  • May 10th
  • June 14th
  • July 12th
  • August 9th
  • September 13th
  • October 11th

Summer Health Lunch Bunch 

Many local school systems, in conjunction with the USDA, offer summer food programs to students.  Free, nutritionally balanced lunches are offered to any child ages 18 and younger.

In the months of June and July, Goshen Health is proud to partner with several school systems in Elkhart and Kosciusko counties to offer fun, interactive nutrition education activities at select summer feeding sites. Kids who attend these lunch sites and participate earn fun prizes while learning!
