The Nutrition Education Program

The Nutrition Education Program

Not many of us are born knowing how to cook, much less knowing how to cook food that is both tasty AND nutritious. The Nutrition Education Program is an active learning initiative focused on basic nutrition, food safety, and healthier food choices. The Food Bank provides “hands-on” classes for representatives from low-income families to help them understand how food choices can affect their future well-being, as well as their present health. Menu planning for nutritionally balanced meals and snacks combined with tips for shopping on a small budget provide students with tools that will equip them to make healthier food choices for themselves and their families. We also provide recipes for tasty, healthy dishes that incorporate food that is currently available from the Food Bank.
