Healthy Meals Program Receives Grant from Walmart Foundation

Post

To effectively address hunger and create lifelong healthy habits, nutrition education and enrichment activities that will support healthy eating and active living are critical. Funding from the Walmart Foundation will help enhance the Healthy Meals Program by supporting nutrition education and cooking skills enrichment activities at program sites.

Nutrition education will be offered to youth at our meals sites and to their parents and families to support positive change for the entire family. Opportunities will be provided for youth to participate in garden-based cooking education activities that will allow youth to participate in lessons about seasonality, harvest, and how to prepare, store, and cook fresh fruits and vegetables.

Thank you to the Walmart Foundation for your generous support of the Healthy Meals Program!
