SAN BERNARDINO, CA– Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County (CAPSBC) is celebrating National Community Action Month, dedicated to recognizing the success of the National Community Action Network that fights poverty across the United States. This month, CAPSBC will be conducting healthy food cooking workshops at partnering soup kitchens to educate their staff on the importance of healthy food preparation. The project, funded through a grant from Kaiser Permanente, is focused on educating our communities on how to prepare and consume healthful food. The cooking demonstrations will be done by Graduate students of the Loma Linda University School of Public Health. Nutrition education resources and healthy food preparation tips will be shared with the staff.
“Community Action Month is a wonderful time to honor and celebrate the impact Community Action has in the lives of families and communities across the country. Agencies are successful every day in helping families achieve economic security. Given that the needs of each family and community are unique, Community Action can use a range of resources and programs to meet local needs in creative and impactful ways. This month we are pleased to showcase the fantastic work of our Food Bank in helping our partner soup kitchens who serve food insecure families and individuals who need nutritional assistance,” stated Patricia L. Nickols-Butler, Chief Executive Officer of CAPSBC.
