July: SWAP

July is here and we will be talking about SWAP (Supporting Wellness at Pantries) this month.  SWAP is a stoplight nutrition ranking system designed to help promote healthy food choices at food banks and food pantries. SWAP is based on the most recent Dietary Guidelines, and the MyPlate Daily Checklist, to rank foods based on saturated fat, sodium and sugar.  The goal of SWAP is to help increase the supply and demand for healthy food in food banks and pantries.

Those visiting the Pantry will see shelf tags with the Green, Yellow, and Red colors and short, nutrition messages on each of them.
