Our adult learning program uses a series of ten or more lessons led by trained volunteers in experiential hands on learning activities. Participants are taught useful skills in food label reading, budgeting, coupon use, meal planning, food safety, preparation, and storage. Students walk away with greater hope and opportunities in academia and career fields. We also enroll pregnant and new mothers and incorporate lessons for improving infant nutrition through breastfeeding as well as basic parenting strategies and practices.
Within our youth program we cover topics such as the importance of drinking water, staying active, being watchful of portion size, regulating sugar, sodium and unhealthy fats, and choosing whole grain, calcium, protein and mineral rich food sources. Our youth workshops can be found in after-school programs, 4-H clubs, day camps, community centers and within a variety of other youth development programs.
