Diabetes & You Education Series

Exclusively for Food Bank partner agencies, Diabetes & You is a four part education series. This series educates emergency food program recipients at risk, with prediabetes, or diabetes by increasing overall knowledge of diabetes, prevent or manage risks of the disease, select foods to encourage a healthy lifestyle, and empower individuals to take charge of their health. 

In a pre-registered group, a skilled registered dietitian nutritionist facilitates sessions through group discussions, printed educational materials, hands-on learning activities, and opportunities to share personal experiences to improve overall health. Additionally, individuals receive a package of healthy foods at each session including items like fresh produce and lean meats to reduce food insecurity.
