About Our Nutrition Jobs
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is pleased to announce the launch of a grant funded nutrition education program in twelve counties throughout the state. The anticipated start date for this program is June 2018 and is contingent upon the availability of grant funding. This is a nutrition education program designed to promote health and to reduce the risk of chronic disease among limited-resource individuals and communities. Classes will be offered in a variety of formats to partnering schools, organizations and workplaces that serve a predominantly low-income population. Cooking demonstrations, educational table displays and 4-6 week classes will be offered at school and community sites throughout our service area.
The goal of the grant funded nutrition education program is to increase access to reliable sources of healthy food as well as to promote physical activity to reduce obesity in our most vulnerable communities. The program is designed to help low-income individuals and families stretch their food dollars throughout the month to reduce the negative health outcomes associated with hunger and food insecurity.
CFBNJ has the grant to provide nutrition education services for the following counties: Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, Salem & Union.
