Nutritional Guidance

Being able to select non-taxable grocery items helps to ensure that the food people are selecting while on the Food for Friends program is nutritious. Most staples such as meat, milk products, and fresh, canned or frozen fruits and vegetables are non taxable, while most junk food is taxable.  Furthermore, a duplicate receipt of what was purchased on the food card is collected back from the grocery store when the card is collected, Food for Friends will check to ensure nutritional items were purchased.

If a client requests help or we think the client could use tips on how to shop for nutrient dense foods on a budget we will provide that guidance. Since we do not want to duplicate services that guidance may come in the form of a collaborative approach with another agency or a referral to another agency.

Educational services may come in the form of grocery store tours, nutritional workshops, and more depending on what is available at the time. 

Food for Friends workshops are open to anyone wanting more knowledge around nutrition. Entrance into any nutrition workshop is via a $5 donation that goes towards the costs of facilitating the workshops. 

The donation is required at the time of registration and is non-refundable. To register please clink on the link below.
