March is National Nutrition Month – We’re Celebrating with Tips, Recipes and More
March is National Nutrition Month! Throughout the month, Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays, along with ONE Charlotte Health Alliance (OCHA), will be featuring tips and recipes that emphasize, educate and encourage the importance of healthy eating habits.
Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays provides nutritious groceries to more than 80,000 individuals, annually, from different nationalities, backgrounds, and cultures. Our Nutrition Services Coordinator and Registered Dietitian, Chasidie Glover says, “We believe our clients should have access to food that is nourishing to their bodies while embracing their culture. Throughout the month, Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays will be partnering with One Charlotte Health Alliance to bring this theme – Celebrate a World of Flavors – to life! Each week, we will feature a topic that emphasizes the importance of healthy eating habits while educating the clients we serve.”
Stay tuned each week to see what fun recipes, nutrition education and activities we have to offer and check out eatright.org for more!
During National Nutrition Month, Chasidie will visit the OCHA mobile food pharmacies to answer any questions regarding diet and nutrition that our pantry clients may have. She will be sharing tips such as Cooking with Sweet Potatoes (English and Spanish) and recipes such as for Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas (English and Spanish)
