Walmart Foundation Grant Supports Nutrition Education Programs at Surrey
A grant from Walmart Foundation has helped provide nutrition education at Surrey. Thanks to the grant, more than 500 older adults participated in Surrey’s dynamic nutrition programs in the past year. Surrey conducted the programs at all four of its sites, local libraries and senior housing communities. The programs offered all took a holistic approach to nutrition education, emphasizing the importance of healthy eating and exercise on both physical and emotional well-being. Programs included creative cooking classes, lunch and learns, and courses designed to introduce behavior focused strategies to nutrition and manage specific chronic conditions. Surrey is planning to continue to offer its nutrition education programs and is looking to expand its offerings and develop new programs. Walmart Foundation’s commitment to nutrition education is making a difference in our community.
