Every day, Harvesters works hard to help support the more than 383,000 community members who face hunger in northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas. These neighbors and families in need struggle with underemployment, the growing cost of living and other issues that prompt them to turn to our services for additional support. This March, Harvesters is recognizing National Nutrition Month® as we continue to work for the people we serve who not only periodically lack access to enough food to provide for their households, but lack access to the nutritious, healthful food they need in order to lead active and healthy lives.
The health food movement in the United States is no longer a movement but a way of life, and healthy, nutritious food should be available to everyone.
National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Harvesters, Feeding America and the entire network of food banks across the country are working with our partners at the Academy to help bring awareness to the difficulties that many of our clients face in providing healthy options for their families.
At Harvesters we have been working diligently to make vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat/non-fat dairy more available to our clients. Often our clients come to us at the end of the month when budgets have depleted or in an effort to make their grocery list stretch. Our staff also helps to provide health education and information for our clients.
We would not be able to continue this critical work and provide increased access to healthy, nutritious foods without your support. Join us as we continue to work toward a community that is hunger-free and healthy for all.
Together, we can provide hope and promote health to families struggling for a better tomorrow. Together we can feed hungry people today and work to end hunger tomorrow.
