Nutrition Counts:

Nutrition Counts is a pre-employability program. Twice a week four mothers are assigned to prepare the meals. This program provides a nutritious meals that serves 40 families. The goal of the program has two folds; it teaches the mothers how to prepare nutritious meals for their families on a limited budget. It also allows the mothers to develop skills by learning how to work as a team, cook for a large group, prepares them for employment and good work ethics.

Preparation of meals: Once a week fresh food is purchased from local food stores.The mothers meet with Giffonne ( parent animator) once a week to discuss menus.

  • The weekly flyers are reviewed for good deals.
  • Once a month the mothers take turn introducing new fruits & vegetables to the group.
  • In order to reach a wider diversified group we also cook Halal chicken and gluten free meals.
