In partnership with Florida Nutrition Ed, Second Harvest offers nutrition education classes to help SNAP-eligible Florida residents incorporate more nutritious foods into their diet, adopt an active lifestyle, prevent chronic disease, manage a healthy weight and improve their quality of life. The program provides free nutrition education classes in Brevard, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties.
Experienced nutrition education coordinators teach nutrition education classes on a wide range of topics. These classes are to be taught as per curriculum approved by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Classes are available for various age groups, such as youth/teens, families with children, adults and seniors.
Nutrition education plays a critical role in helping children, families and seniors lead healthier lives on a limited budget. By hosting nutrition education classes at your organization or facility, you can be part of creating sustainable, long-term changes in your community.
