Food Bank Nutrition Education

CEO logo burgundy



The Commission on Economic Opportunity is committed to teaching families about good nutrition and healthy lifestyles. By teaching young and old how to plan meals, shop and cook together, we can fight the food insecurity that creates both hunger and obesity.

The Food Bank Nutrition Educators provide educational sessions to children and adults of all ages, including food and cooking demonstrations, nutrition classes, after-school and pre-school activities, health fairs, and presentations at senior centers. Educators also work with Food Bank member agencies to plan healthy menus and prepare safe meals.

CEO Nutrition Educators also work with several local school districts (including Wilkes-Barre Area, Wyoming Valley West, Greater Nanticoke Area, Hanover Area, and Hazleton Area) to provide bi-monthly in-class nutrition lessons to kindergarten through ninth grade. Over 9,000 students will participate in nutrition classes during the school year.
