demonstrations and cook with food they'll be receiving that day. so they taste the sample they have recipes and when they go home they feel much more empowered to cook with those items.we feel very strongly about getting nutritious food into the hands of families with children.if we start early when kids start to learn to eat and we incorporate these food items already in their diet chances are we are already to fight against future diseases like diabetes and obesity. whether the focus of the second harvest food bank is disease prevention or maintaining a balanced diet for struggling families, it is a mission approached with enthusiam.the more we can do to help them and provide them with resources to get on their feet and to be healthy and to do well in school and at work the better we are for everybody. it's just amazing to be out at sites, engage with clients, learn about their cultures and really help promoting health. it's amazing.in san jose jeff pierce kron four news.
