Huntington’s Kitchen encourages healthy eating during pandemic | News

HUNTINGTON — For many, it’s a challenge to consistently eat healthy, remain active and address other health-related habits. The pandemic changed the way all of us live and work, but it also affected healthy lifestyles and where many of us eat our meals.
