Penn State Nutrition

The Penn State Nutrition programs provide PHA residents with information on eating healthy, food shopping, how to read food labels and how to cook healthy meals. Each resident attends a five week session and at the end of the session they receive a certificate of completion, cook book and tote bag. To date Penn State has provided 20 nutrition classes for the Philadelphia Housing Authority. During the Summer Food Program Penn State and the Food Share program provided fresh fruit and veggies to ten of our summer food sites for the youth. We work with schools, community agencies, libraries, and food pantries around the cities encouraging people to engage in physical activity for overall better health.
