(Riverside, CA – February 28, 2022) – Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB), the regional food bank of the Inland Empire, has opened registration for the bi-annual child nutrition education program known as The Goodness in Food (TGIF) and space is already filling up! The free of cost 4-week program will educate kids aged 6-9 on nutritious education and simple gardening.
With classes beginning March 5th, children enrolled in TGIF will spend four consecutive in-person Saturdays with the food bank team to engage in interactive lessons that promote healthy eating and hunger-relief solutions. The weekly one hour series is designed to help children understand the benefits of healthy eating directly from a food bank and will conclude with a gardening experience at Overflow Farms in Riverside, CA.
“We believe that children should have fun while learning about healthy eating,” said Stephanie Otero, CEO at FARSB. “TGIF provides more than just education, but a hands-on opportunity for kids to explore healthy eating habits that can beneficially last through adulthood.”
Registration is required and commitment to completing the program is encouraged. For more information on this exciting opportunity, please visit www.FeedingIE.org/tgif or contact Jacqueline Arias at jarias@feedingamericaIE.org.
