Nutrition Education

We are committed to helping people in our community learn about nutritious food choices, and how to stay healthy on a limited food budget.

FREE NUTRITION CLASSES FOR FAMILIES & SENIORS 

The Food Bank’s commitment to ending hunger in our region includes a belief that knowledge is power for the families in need.  The Nutrition Education program at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada offers a free nutrition class series for families called Smart Shopper and a class series for seniors called Seniors Eating Well.

Smart Shopper

Smart Shopper is a series of classes offered by the Food Bank of Northern Nevada that promotes a healthy lifestyle on a budget. Each class incorporates discussions, activities, food tastings, and time to be physically active. Classes are hosted by neighborhood schools where many families have been identified to be SNAP-eligible.
