As a qualified nutritionist I was very excited to volunteer with Leah’s Pantry. They have created an excellent program for healthy eating for both adults and children, through which they aim to improve people’s health at the individual and community level. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff guide participants through an exploration of the principles of healthy eating and give advice on how to implement better choices in people’s own lives through cooking demonstrations, sharing recipes, group discussions and creating SMART goals. Their workshops are both fun and informative.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Eating well is so important for our health, yet the majority of people are unwilling to make even small changes or sacrifices in what they eat. It's so fantastic to meet people who are enthusiastic about new foods and improving their health.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoyed getting to know people from different communities. The biggest kick of course is empowering someone to improve their own and their children's health.
