Nutrition, Health and Wellness
The Island Harvest Nutrition Task Force was implemented in order to help clients from our agencies become aware of healthy options from the food pantry and help them develop the resource skills needed to prepare, cook and eat healthier foods for themselves and their families. We provide nutrition education to the community through printed materials, presentations, recipes and food demos/food tastings. There are many barriers to consuming healthy food some of which are cost, availability, preparation time, and lack of knowledge about how to prepare food. The Island Harvest Nutrition Task Force will work on these barriers so that our clients can improve their overall health.
