Nutrition Center

Our Commitment to Nutrition

In an area with one of the highest costs of living in the nation, our clients face having to make difficult choices between paying for food, housing, medication, transportation, and other necessities. With limited budgets come limited nutritional options as well. To help support the health of our clients and their families, we provide nutritious foods and resources to cook nourishing meals, while aligning with the latest in nutrition science. We honor client choice and cultural preferences regarding food selection and offer a diverse collection of recipes, training, and cooking videos.

 

If you are interested in learning more about the nutrition education program and policy, and helping us promote food resources and share nutrition education, consider volunteering with our outreach and nutrition education teams.
