MANNA partners with Mission Health Partners and the YMCA on Nutrition Initiatives
YMCA Mobile Kitchen at Haywood Pediatrics!
Nutrition Works is a collaborative pilot project involving MANNA FoodBank, the YMCA of Western North Carolina, and Mission Health Partners. The goal of this work is to disrupt the negative impacts of food insecurity on patient health. When money is tight, each day can mean a series of spending trade-offs that can have both short and long-term effects on health and well-being. This year the work is beginning with six Mission clinics in Buncombe, Haywood and McDowell counties. By incorporating simple screening questions into clinic intake forms, practitioners at Mission Health clinics will be able to “diagnose” food insecurity onsite within their practice. Once diagnosed, clients will be directed to the MANNA Food Helpline to find out how to get more food into their home, and connected with the YMCA’s Healthy Living Mobile Kitchen for access to fresh healthy food, cooking demonstrations and nutrition lessons with tangible, take home practices at each clinic location. This collaborative approach will provide wrap around services to families experiencing food insecurity so that they have the resources and training to lead a healthy active life. The YMCA, Mission, and MANNA hope that this pilot will set the stage for connecting more clinics across Western North Carolina with food distribution partners providing resources and support to patients in need of healthy food.
"Nutrition Works" project activities are underway in December 2016.
The YMCA Mobile kitchen is scheduled to be at Haywood Pediatrics in the Clyde parking lot on the following dates:
Tuesday, JANUARY 10th from 8:00 - 10:00 am
