National Nutrition Month

2018 National Nutrition Month

Thank you to this year’s National Nutrition Month Co-Chairs, Amber Colvin and Brittany Boulduc!

VAND hosted 3 opportunities to serve our community for this year’s National Nutrition Month. VAND members served at Halifax Urban Ministries Bridge of Hope, hosted a “Breakfast for Your Brain” presentation to high school students, and gathered food to benefit Food Brings Hope.

2017 National Nutrition Month- 2nd Annual Food Drive

VAND had another successful food drive to help our community in 2017!

A total of 936 pounds of donated food and 30 “Eating Healthy on a Budget” handouts were provided to the east and west Salvation Army Food Pantries.

Catherine DesRuisseau , VAND’s 2017 National Nutrition Month Chair, worked tirelessly to develop, organize, and implement our food drive! We couldn’t have done it without you!
