Feeding America Joins The Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics To Support National Nutrition Month

An apple a day may be out of reach for the more than 50 million Americans facing hunger

CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This March, Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity, is recognizing National Nutrition Month® in honor of the 1 in 6 Americans who lack access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life. National Nutrition Month® is an education campaign sponsored annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics; the campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This year is the 40th anniversary of National Nutrition Month®, and the theme is "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day.

Feeding America is committed to helping food insecure people get the healthy food they need to eat right, their way, every day. Each year, Feeding America serves 37 million Americans struggling hunger, including nearly 14 million children and 3 million seniors. Together, the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks secures and distributes nearly 3.4 billion pounds of food and grocery products annually, including more than 800 million pounds of fresh produce.

"Feeding America and our network of food banks strive to provide those facing hunger not only with enough food to fill them up, but also the accessibility to healthful, nourishing foods," said Bob Aiken, President and CEO of Feeding America. "We endeavor to provide our clients with food emphasized in the 2010 USDA Dietary Guidelines, such as fruits and vegetables, protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy, as these types of food are often out of reach for many of the families we serve."

"The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' vision of optimizing the nation's health through food and nutrition is strengthened each March as we celebrate National Nutrition Month. As registered dietitians and dietetic technicians, registered, we are able to translate sound science-based research into helpful information that people can understand and apply to their everyday lives," says registered dietitian and Academy President Ethan A. Bergman.

Feeding America food banks are working to ensure our clients have access to the information and skills they need to make smart food choices. More than 80 percent of Feeding America food banks provide nutrition education programs in the communities they serve. These programs range from classes on how to purchase healthy foods on a limited budget, to engaging communities in growing their own fresh food. Our food banks equip clients with the resources they need to secure and eat a healthy diet—not just today, but in the long run too.
