Nutrition Ambassadors at Millwood

February 23, 2016

On Friday, February 12, Kitchen volunteers Kevin and Terri pulled out their Second Harvest Kitchen gear, aprons and all, and headed out to the Millwood Mobile Food Bank for their first Nutrition Ambassador recipe sampling session. Nutrition Ambassadors are volunteers from the Second Harvest Kitchen who frequent Mobile Food Banks and other community events to inspire clients to cook healthy, delicious, and simple meals from scratch at home. Most of the ingredients for the recipes can be found within their distribution kits recieved at the event.

Millwood's event featured split pea soup and dried apples and pears made by the Second Harvest Kitchen's Nutrition Education Coordinator Jandyl. Kevin and Terri had the chance to talk to several clients about helpful tips for cooking with their distribution kits, pass out recipe cards, and exchange recipe ideas with everyone around.  Many clients spoke with Terri and Kevin about how Nutrition Ambassadors provide great, simple, and healthy ideas for what clients can make with their distribution kits from Second Harvest.

This distribution was a great way to kick off our new Nutrition Ambassador program through the Second Harvest Kitchen. We are excited to have Terri and Kevin as part of our team. Looking to join the team? Contact Allie at 252 6271 or for more information and upcoming distribution opportunities.
