Nutrition & Physical Activity

Our Programs

Through interactive programs developed by experts, participants learn about healthy eating patterns and active lifestyles. Programs are taught in our one-of-a-kind teaching theater, garden, or kitchen. Visitors may also enjoy the world’s first health education playground, WakeMed’s PlayWELL Park.

As a proud recipient of the SNAP-Ed grant, the Poe Center is able to provide intensive nutrition and physical activity programming to many low-income populations in North Carolina.

The Nutrition & Physical Activity Theater hosts a giant magnetic MyPlate, interactive food label, the Poe Cafeteria, and much more to empower students with knowledge to keep them focused on fitness.

From chopping to mixing to serving, visitors to the Poe Center’s CookWELL Kitchen get hands-on experience with cooking delicious and nutritious meals.

The GrowWELL Garden is an interactive outdoor classroom where participants learn about environmental science and maintaining a seasonal edible garden.
