TOUCH recognizes that a person living with a chronic illness is not able to address their health needs if they do not have access to basic nutritious food items.
In 2003 TOUCH establish our Eating Well Nutrition Program after we noted improved health outcomes from our members (clients) who were receiving weekly home delivered pantry items.
Our Eating Well Nutrition Program is based on the ADA Medical Nutrition Therapy model. Medical Nutrition Therapy focuses on improving the members education and understanding around issues of nutrition. Goals of our program include improving and maintaining health and increasing understanding of the link between eating habits and medical conditions like Diabetes, High Cholesterol and Obesity.
TOUCH’s Eating Well Nutrition Program provides the following services for our members:
- Nutritional Counseling/Education
- Home Delivered Food Pantry
