Food Banks Of The Past Get Makeover With Help From MAZON, Kaiser Permanente

"We want to elevate the idea of a food bank from a dented can thrown in a box to nutritious, fresh food offered along with education and awareness about healthy eating," explains Jodi Balis, a registered dietician with CAFB. Balis goes on to highlight how CAFB's partnership with MAZON through the Healthy Options, Healthy Meals program has aided the food bank in placing a more concerted focus on nutrition and education.

"The relationship with MAZON has been transformative.  They've been truly invaluable in putting all this together. The peer learning, technical assistance, and one-on-one support MAZON provided was instrumental in helping us shape nutrition policies that ultimately change the kinds of foods we procure and the ways we engage the community in healthier eating."
