Donate Now One of the newer programs at Second Harvest, Nutrition Education focuses on “nudging” people in the right direction towards healthier food choices. The program concentrates on encouraging people to make small changes over time to better their health. Thanks to Scripps Networks Interactive and Food Network, many of the activities in this program are possible because of the Nutrition Learning Center. Some ways the program is implemented include:
- Grant funded, nutrition education sessions, consisting of 6 lessons, using “Eating Smart, Being Active”
- Preparing and serving recipe samples made from food being distributed that day at Mobile Pantries
- Tours of the Giving Garden; sampling in the Nutrition Learning Center of the produce grown in the garden
- Online materials made available to partner agencies
Although this program is still in its early stages, Second Harvest will continue to cultivate it in order to better educate others on how to make healthier food choices.
