Today’s community internship was with Foodshare Mobile! Foodshare is a fantastic program in the Hartford area that takes food that would otherwise be thrown away and redistributes it to people who need it. People who wouldn’t normally get access to healthy foods can get carrots, potatoes, bread, onions, etc. for free.
Programs like this help me realize how much difference people can make if they use a little creativity. Whoever thought of the idea of redistributing food that would otherwise end up in a landfill – well done.
Today, we handed out packets with recipes and nutrition information, and chatted up people waiting in the line.
I’m loving these community experiences so far – so eye-opening.
Later on, a walk with the doggles:
I ended making a delicious tofu curry soup with some *ahem* unusual ingredients, but I won’t be posting the recipe until tomorrow because this girl’s gotta study for her Community Nutrition midterm! Yikes! So until then, STAY TUNED! Have a nice night, everyone!
Query: Does your community have food banks or other programs to help ease food insecurity?
