Nutrition Planning WorkshopNutrition & Menu Planning for Charitable Food Programs

Whether you serve 10 or 200 people, offer a daily meal or a monthly food pantry, rely primarily on food donations or have a budget to work with – selecting appropriate foods for people who are nutritionally vulnerable creates unique challenges & opportunities. Join our Registered Dietitian and your fellow food program coordinators and volunteers for a discussion about:

  • Typical nutritional needs of our guests – the homeless, seniors, people with diabetes or suppressed immune systems, etc.
  • Balancing quality & quantity
  • Resources available – information, training & food.
