I posted a Food Day blog entitled "Let's Get Cooking with Kids!" in partnership with Food Day 2013. I promoted this on Facebook and Twitter and Food Day 2013 also featured it and promoted it.

The Hunger in Our Community toolkit is spot on in identifying underlying problems that contribute to poor nutrition and poor health. For the refugee audiences I addressed, the presentations epitomize how the stress they face in learning how to acculturate in a new environment affects their families' food intake and ultimate health.

This year the South Carolina Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics had Food Day Events all throughout the state. The Charleston-Trident Dietetic Association volunteered for the Cook It Raw- Food Day Southern Road Trip event at Bowens Island. Local Charleston chefs worked with chefs from all over the globe to create a southern BBQ feast with an international influence. The Cook It Raw event will promote collaboration amount local communities and chefs, celebrate the rich heritage of the American South, raise awareness and support local food systems, and use cuisine to address social, cultural, and environmental issues.

The Hunger in our Community toolkit is an invaluable resource for dietitians to help raise awareness of hunger in our local communities. This toolkit inspired great questions and even greater ideas for both adult and teen audiences. As a dietitian, it also reminded me of the special challenges that many of my patients face, and it’s not often as simple as telling them to just make healthier choices.

For Food Day, I organized a "Lettuce Try It" event. This lettuce taste test was part of a state-wide effort to get kids across Georgia to eat fresh lettuce during October Farm to School Month. The taste test was held at a local elementary school on Food Day, October 24. It was a great tie-in to Food Day's mission to introduce children to new foods such as vegetables. The goal for the lettuce taste test was to introduce new foods (3 types of lettuce) with a simple recipe so that students are more likely to try new vegetables at home.

The Hunger in Our Community presentations were well received by my audiences, both children and parents alike. The most encouraging aspect was the conversation that was sparked from the idea that an individual could be overweight yet malnourished. It made for a great learning opportunity to discuss the idea that inexpensive, high calorie, nutrient poor foods may actually cost more in the long run if you factor in the high costs of being sick and unhealthy.

For World Food Day, we did the Kids Eat Right "Meal in a Peel" potato bar and featured nonfat Greek yogurt and lean chili with beans for extra protein. We had a few kids try a new food that night & it was awesome!

I participated in Florida Food Day events, including visiting three preschools with a "How do you eat an orange?" event. We also had a company Food Day potluck, and we showed “A Place at the Table” on three different University sites. Additionally, we provided grocery store tours and cooking demos across South Florida. It was a great day!

I really appreciated the toolkit, "Healthy Eaing-From the Ground Up" for teens. I used the toolkit for Food Day and found the information and PowerPoint presentation right on target for the age group that I was presenting to. It was interactive and held the teen audience's interest. I felt that the group as a whole learned new information and some came up to me afterwards telling me how much they enjoyed the presentation. I am now looking into presenting the adult program to the parents. It was such a useful toolkit. I am very thankful to all who put such a great presentation together for us to use to teach others!
