It's National Nutrition Month and the Central Illinois Food Bank wants to make sure people can be healthy with the services they provide. Some ways to do this when donating canned foods, is to try and see if there is an option with the American Heart Association seal. Other ways include visiting the Mobile Kitchen Cart to watch people prepare food in healthy ways and finding healthier recipes.
Krista Lisser, Public Relations Manager for the Central Illinois Food Bank said when looking for canned food to donate especially fruits and vegetables, try to find low sodium veggies, and fruit with 100 percent fruit juice.
Lisser said their Mobile Food Cart travels around the area, and people can watch certified dieticians cook food and prepare it in ways to give individuals and families the most amount of nutrients.
