Hunger hurts, and healthy food can improve the wellness of the community. Through the Partners for Wellness initiative – one of the first of its kind in food banks – the CAFB is making low barrier nutrition education resources, like our recipe cards, available through our online menu and tracking the nutritional value of foods we distribute. Together with the CAFB, these 29 organizations are working to make a positive impact for community members who are not always sure where their next meal is coming from.
