Healthy Habits Nutrition Education

Nutrition Education

Healthy Habits, Eating Well on a Budget is the community nutrition program of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Our team of culinary and nutrition professionals work directly with the Food Bank’s network of partner agencies and their guests to provide relevant, practical, and science-based nutrition information to the communities we serve. Through a variety of in-person and virtual outreach, Healthy Habits works to bridge the gap between food insecurity and health for the guests of our member agencies. Healthy Habits is currently accepting invitations to host classes, workshops, and cooking demonstrations at member agencies for guests, staff, and volunteers.
