JFSGNH Teams Up with Gateway Community College

The JFSGNH Food Pantry has teamed up with Gateway Community College and its Allied Health Program to help educate clients on healthy and nutritious choices. Students will be stationed at the  Pantry throughout this semester to meet and discuss with clients different ways to reduce sodium and sugar; how to read and understand nutritional labels; and how to make wise choices to help alleviate, or combat common illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.  Pictured are Nara Balbi and Michelle Taylor-Hall with their stock pot of heart healthy borscht and information regarding stroke prevention and key nutrients for health and wellness.
