Quarterly Tours Dates & Topics:
Thurs, August 17th, 5 p.m. - Cooking Matters™
Eating healthy on a limited budget is a hard thing to do, and many of us don't know how to do it. Our Cooking Matters program is a six-week course that teach low-income families how to shop for and create healthy, affordable meals.
Weds, October 18th, 5 p.m. - Children's Nutrition Initiative
Who wants kids to go hunger? Not us and not you! CNI programs- Send Hunger Packing, Healthy Kids Club, Summer Food Service Program, School Pantries, and the Family Pantry Box Program- get food to kids and their families so they can learn and grow. It's just that simple.
Thurs, February 15th, 2018, 5 p.m. - Food Procurement
When we all come together, it's amazing what can happen. You might wonder how we can transform every $1.00 we receive into acquiring 8 meals. We receive millions of pounds of donated food from many places, but we have to pay to get the food to us. Learn how it all works.
Thurs, May 17, 2018, 5 p.m. - Community Kitchen and Gardens
The gardens at Care and Share Food Bank play a vital role in providing nutrition for those in need. During each growing season, we harvest hundreds of pounds of healthy food from our three gardens and greenhouse. They are a treasured component of everything we do because they provide locally grown food to our own community.
