Springing Into Action…..Nutrition Classes Are On Again!!!

After a long long cold winter right into the month of March, East Orange/Orange CDC is glad to announce the Nutrition Classes are on again! Our Nutrition Classes in partnership with Rutgers University’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) began on Wednesday, April 1st.  Each participant (21 for this session) receives a bag of fresh produce (vegetables and fruits) after each class.  There are 8 classes afterwhich the participants receive a Certificate of Achievement in Nutrition, healthy eating and food prepration. (www.njaes.rutgers.edu) Our partners in nutrition also include Community Food Bank of NJ (www.cfbnj.org), Catholic Charities (www.ccanj.com) and Oaisis Urban Farm (www.OASISUrbanFarm.com). Together we  are helping to change how you make food choices through nutritionally sound diets, personal development and the improvement of the total family diet and nutritional well-being. Our volunteers are not only our participants in the program but community conscious residents. Members of our Board of Trustees and staff have been and are currently active in the classes. Our key community decision makers are the community-at-large through a Community Needs Assessment initiated by-yearly.
