March is National Nutrition Month!
- March 1, 2014
National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education campaign sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics with the goal of illustrating the importance of a balanced eating and exercise habits as well as making informed decisions about food choices. This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” which aims at promoting the combination of taste and nutrition.
Feeding America, a nation-wide network of foodbanks, recognizes National Nutrition Month in honor of the 1 in 6 Americans whose struggle with hunger limits their ability to sustain an active and healthy life. Check out Feeding America’s blog for food bank news and initiatives throughout the month of March.
This month CiviCore would like to recognize our food bank clients from around the country whose amazing work helps Americans struggling with hunger meet their nutritional needs. Keep up the great work!
