Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month? During March and April we will introduce “My Plate”, a pilot nutrition education program designed by the USDA. The focus is to educate clients how to choose nutritionally sound foods in order to lead a healthy lifestyle. IPM asks that all food drives in March and April feature the 4 main food categories: fruits, grains, vegetables and proteins. Monetary donations received during this time will be used to purchase these types of food.
Hunger Challenge: An anonymous contributor has pledged that for all food items and dollar contributions received in March and April, IPM will receive a challenge gift to support the “My Plate” program! That means the more items and funds donated, the more IPM will receive!
We challenge you to help IPM clients who struggle daily to put nutritious meals on the table. Please consider a gift to support the “My Plate” program and this special challenge.
