Eat Well Wichita County is one goal of the Health Coalition of Wichita County.


Wichita County will be a healthy community with healthy people and an excellent quality of life that supports health and well-being.

Characteristics of a Healthy Community
Wichita County is a community in which citizens enjoy a good quality of life, and are physically, orally, and mentally healthy. Community members implement and maintain a healthy lifestyle that involves being active; having access to, and seeking preventative care; being well informed; and able to access and utilize resources such as health services, public transportation, and healthy foods.

Membership is FREE

Your restaurant can play an active role in the health of the community.

Our Registered Dietitians will review existing menus to establish which items meet the healthy criteria guidelines. We are not the “food police;” we will only offer healthy suggestions upon request.

If a menu item fits, we ask that you identify those items by making the Eat Well logo visible to your customers. We will then advertise your restaurant(s) in our Eat Well promotions at no cost
