WE TACKLE HUNGER FROM ALL ANGLES
Because we work on the front lines of hunger, we know how difficult it can be for low-income families to eat healthily. Many lack the time, tools and skills to find and prepare healthy foods, or the cost of healthy groceries is simply out of reach.
Feeding Westchester offers resources and education for a lifetime of healthier eating.
Feeding Westchester’s partnering agencies often also need a helping hand to better serve our hungry Westchester residents. We help build the capacity of these 300 local organizations, passing our knowledge, expertise, and grant funds on to them for a stronger Westchester.
WE TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO SHOP, COOK, AND EAT ON A BUDGET
Our hands-on cooking and nutrition classes reach thousands of people every year, transforming meals for generations of families. Our “Just Say Yes to Fruits and Vegetables (JSY)” Program provides low-income families with practical, cost-effective tips for increasing fruit and vegetable consumption. A licensed nutritionist from Feeding Westchester works with our agencies to provide hands-on nutrition education workshops and cooking demonstrations. Each workshop provides practical nutrition information using USDA approved lesson plans and recipes, using fresh fruits and vegetables. This helps to raise awareness about eating nutritious foods and preparing them in a safe manner. VIEW NUTRITION EDUCATION VIDEOS
