Nutrition Education is part of the work we do to provide the most nutritious foods possible. We seek to empower families with the knowledge and skills to select and use nutritious food on a limited budget.
Our Nutrition Education Program is led by staffed Registered Dietitians, Dietetic Interns, and volunteer nurses who are available to answer health-related questions.
The Nutrition Education Team Offers:
- Cooking demonstrations using Food Pantry ingredients
- Nutrition topic discussions
- Guest speakers from local universities, local chefs, and health professionals
- Informational handouts and delicious recipes
For more information and if interested in participating in our online Nutrition Education Classes, contact Maria Delis, RD LDN, Nutrition Program Coordinator (708) 386-1324 ext. 1110.
The Nutrition Education Program is funded in part by grants from the Walmart Foundation, and U.S. Department of HUD, CDBG grant from the Village of Oak Park. We would like to express deep appreciation to all of these funders.
