Food for Thought
The Baltimore County Department of Aging's Initiative for 2015 is called Food for Thought. We have developed a number of programs that incorporate this theme, which will help you learn more about food, nutrition and hunger issues in Baltimore County.
Health Education Programs
Market to Meal Time
Join Lauren Williams of Maryland Food Supplement Nutrition Education (FSNE) to learn simple, low-cost ways to include more fruits and vegetables in meals and snacks. In addition, participants will get recipe ideas on how to prepare seasonal produce.
Presentations will be held at Baltimore County Senior Centers.
Lifestyle to Live Well – Diet and Exercise: The Dynamic Duo
Join Karen Kansler, R.N., from MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital to learn how to optimize your health and well-being through diet and exercise.
Programs will be held at Baltimore County Senior Centers.
There are many interesting and rewarding opportunities for volunteers to support local anti-hunger initiatives and hunger service programs. Visit our Volunteer Opportunities site to find out more about these programs.
Baltimore County Department of Aging's RSVP Hunger Corps Program provides volunteers aged 55 or older an opportunity to join the fight against hunger in their community. Through unique partnerships with non-profit organizations and government agencies, volunteers are paired with local sites to support local anti-hunger initiatives and hunger service programs.
