While most people consider collard greens to be a “southern” food, they are also a popular vegetable in other types of regional cooking. They can be combined with pasta for an Italian meal, included in a variety of Spanish soups, and have been used in African and Mexican sauce recipes.
Rice, a cooking staple, not only provides some great health benefits but can also be used in recipes for every meal, and even snacks too!
TABLE has just released new nutrition guidelines in order to improve the nutritional quality of the food items we distribute to children in our community!
After 10 years of serving kids in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, TABLE is well known for the impact we make every week delivering healthy, nutritious food to children who may otherwise be at risk for hunger. What many are unaware of is the effect TABLE’s nutrition education programs have on the children we serve. So, why does TABLE invest in nutrition education?
