NUTRITION & WELLNESS
The West Texas Food Bank needs to make sure those in our community understand the importance of basic nutrition, food safety, and making healthy choices. Our Nutrition Education and Gardening programs help protect our clients’ well-being.
The Nutrition Education Program (SNAP-Ed)
The Nutrition Education Program, or SNAP-Ed, is an active learning initiative focused on basic nutrition, food safety, and healthier food choices. The Food Bank provides hands-on classes to help the community understand how their food choices affect their present and future health. We provide menu planning advice for nutritionally-balanced meals and snacks, tips for shopping on a small budget, and tools to help families make healthier choices. We also provide cooking demonstration classes, recipe creations, and taste testing!
