Nutrition Education



This video, courtesy of the Nutrition Policy Institute, shows how Food Bank of Central New York strives to improve the nutritional quality of our inventory everyday.


Food Bank of Central New York’s four registered dietitians conduct a range of nutrition education for our partner agencies including food safety trainings, workshops teaching healthy behaviors, and food demonstrations.

There is a strong emphasis on proper food safety practices and the Food Bank works closely with our partner agencies to ensure that people are being served safely.

Our registered dietitians reinforce the nutrition principles outlined by the USDA Dietary Guidelines when providing nutrition education to emergency food recipients:

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Eat more whole grains
  • Eat and drink 1% or non-fat dairy products
  • Increase physical activity
