Healthy Pantry Toolkit

In an effort to provide foods to pantries that meet the health and dietary needs and preferences of clients, pantry coordinators will be offered the opportunity to receive one-on-one support from nutritionists at Adagio Health. Support will involve consultation about the nutritional quality of the foods distributed by the food pantry, education about strategies for sourcing and distributing healthy food options and assistance in altering the distribution space to encourage and promote healthy options in the food pantry setting. Many steps can be taken to improve the nutritional quality of foods distributed by food pantries; these steps can be taken independently or concurrently, based upon the capacity and readiness to change of individual pantries.
