November Website Bytes

By Hannah Jastram, Communications Associate

Here’s news about what’s fresh on the Family Development website.

Party On


Our staff and educators have added so much great content to the Live Healthy, Live Well website that we in FD Communications spun off a section specifically for keeping an even keel and balanced budget during the holidays: Healthy Holidays.

New or revised articles include:


We extend much gratitude to Sharon Powell, Judy Myers, Heather Lee, Mary Vitcenda, and Ruth Ellis, as well as the Health and Nutrition review team for creating this content.




Stay Warm


It’s that time of year. We dug out and dusted off the Healthy Winters section of the Live Healthy, Live Well website to address the challenges of living in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest.


Thanks again to Sharon Powell, Mary Vitcenda, and the Family Resiliency review team for this content.


Keep Good Company


FD enjoys great partnerships, and our website is growing to reflect that. Here are three new pages about the work FD does in partnership with other organizations to increase access to healthy foods across Minnesota:

  • Minnesota Food Charter — The charter guides policymakers and community leaders in providing Minnesotans with equal access to affordable, safe, and healthy food regardless of where they live.
  • Minnesota Food Charter Network: Engagement — This network supports and fosters shared action toward ensuring access to healthy foods for all. It does this by building connections and strengthening the capacity of food network leaders.

Many thanks to Stephanie Heim, Jamie Bain, Noelle Harden, Nicole Helgeson, Michael Brott, and Ruth Ellis for their work on these pages.
