Community Nutrition Program

Elijah’s Promise aims to provide equitable, inclusive nutrition education and resources in order to help create a healthier community.

Our new Community Nutrition program is a 3-month family nutrition program that aims to sustainably connect and educate the community on available social, food, and nutrition services within the emergency food system. The program contains three main components including bimonthly family support groups, bimonthly Let’s Cook! cooking classes, and monthly connection to tangible food resources.

The program plans to launch June of 2022 and will run in 3-month cycles 3 times per year. There will be a summer, fall, and spring program series. Elijah’s Promise Community Nutrition has a high focus on health and wellness and encourages family empowerment when it comes to nutritional health and how food can play a role in improving overall health outcomes.
