SOS AmeriCorps VISTAs conduct nutrition education classes and interactive cooking demonstrations to teach children how to maintain and improve their health through their food choices and food preparation techniques. We provide nutrition resources that are not typically available to low-income clients, to magnify the benefits of our healthy food distributions. Together, these efforts create a comprehensive approach to reducing food insecurity and chronic, food-related illness.
Good health starts with good habits, like eating wholesome foods.
With sustainable, aeroponic Tower Gardens, we can easily grow our own fresh, nutrient-rich foods virtually anywhere, year‑round, without soil. We incorporate Tower Gardens into our nutrition education at child care sites to make our lessons fun, comprehensive, and hands-on!
