Fruits and Vegetables

Throughout the Summer of 2015, nutrition educators provided nutrition education for those that came to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) bus. The SNAP-Ed nutrition educators saw many of the same participants weekly. Over time, the participants would share the changes they made from the information they learned through the nutrition education. One participant shared, “I made that broccoli salad you had brought last week--so good! I’m definitely making it when my family comes to visit!”. Another participant said, “This information has been really helpful and gives great ideas for cooking healthy! I have been using your recipes.” The presence of SNAP-Ed educators at the CHOW Bus has allowed the community to become comfortable in approaching the SNAP-Ed educators, asking nutrition and health related questions, and sparking interest in what the SNAP-Ed program has to offer.
