March is National Nutrition Month

We recognize that people struggling with food insecurity often wrestle with chronic health issues too like diabetes and hypertension.  In fact, hunger research shows that people struggling with hunger have higher rates of both.  And they often lack access to nutritious food to change their situation.

Every day, we strive to improve nutritious food for our neighbors in need – because to us – food is medicine.  Roughly one-third of our yearly distribution is made up of fruits and vegetables.  We are honored to provide access to nutritious food to as many of our distributions sites across the state as possible.

And because nutrition is important to us all, we encourage you – our supporters – to follow us on social media all month long.  National Nutrition Month marks a time we can share reminders on ways to eat healthy, information about nutrition classes being offered this month and next, tips on preparing food safely, healthy recipes, best use by dates on a variety of food products and more!
