When people don't have enough nutritious food to eat, children do poorly in school, adults are less productive at work and seniors are less likely to live independently. Food insecurity also puts people at greater risk for health issues like diabetes and hypertension. Harvesters strives to provide the most nutritious food possible to our neighbors in need.
In addition to providing nutritious food, Harvesters offers a variety of nutrition services to its agency partners including nutrition education classes.
Harvesters offers nutrition education classes that agencies can host at their site to teach low-income children and adults how to cook and eat healthier meals. Harvesters trains agency staff, volunteers and clients to teach the following classes through our Train the Teacher model.
Project Strength empowers participants with the knowledge and skills they need to stretch their food resources and provide healthier meals. This six-week program for adults on low and fixed income, covers important nutrition basics, food safety and hands-on cooking. Participants also receive a bag of groceries at the end of each class.
Kids in the Kitchen
Kids in the Kitchen is an age-appropriate, four-week curriculum that focuses on food preparation, food safety skills, nutrition and the importance of making healthy food choices.
This six-week program class helps teens look at health and nutrition in a new light and includes discussion on media and self-esteem and why we make the choices we do.
Harvesters offers one-time classes for low-income adults on specific nutrition topics such as Meatless Meals, Healthy Desserts and Diabetes 101.
Harvesters’ nutrition educators have compiled many of the healthy recipes they use in their nutrition education classes into a cookbook. Download a copy in English or Spanish.
Or, you can purchase a hard copy of the cookbook for $15. Call 816.929.3015 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
