Welcome to the Food & Nutrition Department
Our purpose is to educate people of all walks of life and professional background about the importance of healthful nutrition behaviors.
Our goal is to help our students apply their knowledge in a practical and professional manner where the end result is improved health.
The Food & Nutrition Department at GCC has been an innovative leader in providing nutrition education.
In 2000, the Nutrition Department began collaborating with the Fitness & Wellness Department. These efforts have led to the development of two certificates and a degree program that helps prepare students for immediate entry into the fitness workforce.
In addition, these academic programs can lead to students pursuing further education at a four year college or university. There are many academic and professional paths to choose from.
