Good Nutrition Builds Healthy Communities

Families served by Catholic Charities often have many barriers to overcome– not having access to healthy food shouldn’t be one of them.

Nutrition education has always been a part of the services offered by Catholic Charities. Recently, a greater emphasis has been placed on healthy food choices with the addition of a Food and Nutrition Coordinator, Chanel Griffin. “Nutrition education provides various tools to help the healthy choice be the easier choice. By equipping individuals with the resources to improve health for their families, we are able to create healthier communities,” said Griffin.

In her new role, Griffin will work to ensure that proper nutrition education is accessible to those we serve. In addition to being a resource for our food pantries and strengthening programs she will also manage the Food and Nutrition programs offered by Catholic Charities which includes Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), Nutrition Education, Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and SNAP Outreach.

“Through nutrition education, we plan to bridge the gap for individuals and families so they can understand how to make healthy food choices on a limited budget,” Griffin added. We are excited to see all the ways our community will be impacted by learning about healthy lifestyles.
