Did you know that SPFB provides nutrition classes? Through a partnership with the SNAP program, our nutrition educators provide cooking demonstrations, food budget classes, diabetic management classes and tasting demonstrations for adult clients as well as attending GRUB classes and our Kids Cafe sites. Nutrition education provides opportunities for families to learn how to cook healthy meals, manage diabetes/other health concerns, and also reduce health risks associated with poor nutrition.
