It is well documented that a well-balanced, nutritious diet can have a positive impact on health outcomes. However, eating healthier is more expensive than purchasing less nutrient-dense, more highly processed foods. For those battling chronic medical conditions while trying to make ends meet, the cost of healthier food presents a barrier on the path toward improved health. Food As Medicine strives to remove that barrier, so patients can focus on wellness.

In early March, more than 150 friends and supporters of the Food Bank joined us as we โ€˜topped offโ€™ our new facility in Orange County. Guests had a chance to sign the beam and watch along as it was put into place. For several years, our existing Orange County facility has been too small to accommodate the need in that region, so this new facility will be a huge step forward for the Food Bank and our ability to serve our 400 partners and nearly 200,000 neighbors in need throughout the Hudson Valley. We are incredibly grateful to all the supporters making this project possible. In the coming weeks, we will launch a Capital Campaign, inviting donors to help close any final funding gaps.

Learn more about the project here.

7th Annual Culinary Nutrition Conference

04/10/2024

presented by Culinary Nutrition Collaborative

We are thrilled to announce that early bird registration is NOW OPEN for the 7th Annual Culinary Nutrition Conference!

This conference serves as a bridge between nutrition science and culinary arts, empowering dietitians and health professionals to translate their nutrition expertise into real life practice in the kitchen for more impactful education.

As dietitians, most of us donโ€™t receive culinary nutrition training as part of our dietetic education, but itโ€™s never too late to learn or improve your skills!

Enhancing your knowledge and skills in the area of culinary nutrition opens up a wide variety of opportunities and allows you to:
โ€ข Stay on top of the latest research and trends
โ€ข Lead cooking demos or classes with confidence
โ€ข Help patients adapt recipes to suit their dietary needs and cultural preferences
โ€ข Work with your favorite brands through recipe development, blog posts, special events and more!

Not to mention bringing back fun and enthusiasm into your work!

Iโ€™M IN!

Here are the details:
When is it taking place? June 8th & 9th

Where? Itโ€™s totally virtual, which means you can attend from anywhere. (If youโ€™d prefer to attend an in-person event, weโ€™re cooking something up for Fall 2024.)
All sessions will be recorded in case you canโ€™t join live, and youโ€™ll have access to all the recordings for 6 months to rewatch your favorite sessions or review anything you missed.

What topics will be covered?

Are you or your family members struggling to make ends meet?
Are you concerned about your neighbors who donโ€™t always have enough food?
Do you believe we can do better when it comes to ensuring everyone has what they need to survive and thrive?
Join us on May 1st to share and learn how poverty and food insecurity are impacting our community and how we can take action to end them. In recent years, we saw how policy changes made a big difference. Emergency COVID-19 measures actually led to a big reduction in poverty โ€“ especially child poverty. But as those measures have expired, poverty is once again on the rise. We can change that โ€“ and it starts by coming together.
Please sign up below to join us on May 1 for dinner and to hear and learn from impacted community leaders as we share our plight, fight, and insights, and organize our community to end poverty.
Whether or not you can attend on May 1, we invite [โ€ฆ]

April Updates from Labor Religion Coalition of New York State

04/07/2024

Sign up

Once again, the New York State Budget is late. Since January, the Labor-Religion Coalition has been advocating for a budget that invests in poor, low-income, and working-class communities across New York State, instead of once again catering the whims of the ultra-wealthy and corporate interests. Now, more than ever, we must continue to put pressure on the Governor and Legislative Leadership to deliver a just budgetโ€”one that invests in the resources and services our communities need to survive.

Read on for updates about our 24-hour Prayer Vigil, a report back from the Invest in Our New York Campaignโ€™s Day of Action for a Just Budget, and a note about the upcoming 2024 Moral Fusion Leadership Awards!

Earlier this week, the Labor-Religion Coalition, the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice, and faith leaders from across New York State held a continuous 24-hour Prayer Vigil for a Just Budget. Folks prayed for Governor Hochul and Legislative Leadership to negotiate and pass a budget that prioritizes the needs of poor and low-income New Yorkers. Two dozen faith leaders from all over New York State participated in the effort.

โ€œOur community membersโ€™ access to adequate housing, healthcare, food, education, living wages, and clean air and water depend on the policies now being negotiated behind closed doors, [โ€ฆ]

While research on the role of diet on brain health continues to evolve, scientific evidence suggests that including walnuts as part of a balanced diet may help maintain and improve cognition for individuals across the lifespan. There is also emerging research that suggests certain nutrients, eating patterns and individual foods, such as walnuts, may play a supporting role in mental well-being.

Join us for our latest installment of Eat the Science where Kristy and Jackie will share the latest research on how regular walnut consumption may help support brain health, cognition and mental well-being. They will also be demonstrating two unique walnut recipes in time for National Walnut Day on May 17 and Brain Health Awareness Month in June.

Register today to join the free workshop on May 1st and receive 1 FREE CPEU for Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered pending approval by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).

This workshop series is sponsored by the California Walnut Commission.

Registration for this free event is now open! Click the link below to reserve your spot and be sure to register by April 30th! The workshop will be recorded and available for any [โ€ฆ]
