Nutrition Services works with all age groups of the county's population to provide comprehensive nutrition services to the community. The department not only coordinates the special nutrition program for women, infants and children  (WIC Program) but it also provides community education in schools, programs on nutrition related subjects for the community, and food service consultation and menu reviews for private facilities licensed by the State of Florida.


Payment is due at the time service is rendered.  We accept cash or check with ID.  Flat rate fee for service is $65.00 per hour.

Registered Dietitians and nutrition educators conduct nutrition programs and seminars for the public. Media resources, in-service training, and school health nutrition advisory services are available.
