Sources of Free or Low-Cost Materials
The Food and Nutrition Information Center (FNIC) receives many requests for materials to distribute at health fairs, classes, physicians' offices, wellness programs, and other locations. Since FNIC does not distribute publications in bulk, this webpage is designed to help health professionals and educators locate organizations that provide free or low-cost food and nutrition materials for consumers.
Please examine materials closely for copyright information and secure the necessary permissions for use. When ordering materials, FNIC recommends that you make your request as far in advance as possible to allow for processing and mailing time.
