Wellness Connection

A Guide to Healthy Summer Eating

Summer is here, and it is a time for grilling, swimming, road trips and outdoor activities.  This summer, make a plan to enjoy healthy recipes, fresh produce and treats! Wellness Connection offers opportunities to purchase produce from local farmers and attend cooking demos from our MyWay to Health consultants.

Farmers Market

Each week, local farmers are on the WashU campuses offering fresh produce and healthy food options for you and your family. This summer, we’re introducing 2 Men and a Garden, a local salsa vendor with awesome salsa offerings. Learn more about the Farmers Market and CSA crop box program.
