Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month!

Families, children, and seniors living with food insecurity are less likely to have access to healthy and fresh food, increasing the probability of nutrition-related health issues. We are committed to providing healthy and nutritious food for our neighbors each and every day. Throughout March we provide an additional focus on nutrition education. If you would like to get involved throughout the entire year, here’s some ways you can support our programs across Anne Arundel County:

  • Host a healthy food (low-fat, low-sodium shelf-stable items) drive in celebration of Nutrition Month. Register your food drive.
  • Support our programs so we can continue distributing food and fresh produce throughout our County. Last year we distributed 4 million pounds of food; 840,000 pounds of which was fresh produce.

2023 March Events

Making Nutrition Fun and Easy

In partnership with Annapolis Pediatrics and the Anne Arundel County Public Library, Discoveries, the Library at the Mall.

This was an interactive Nutrition Month activity that engaged kids in nutrition fun while the parents also received a bagful of nutrition resources. Led by Board-Certified Pediatric Nurse, Erin Merli of Annapolis Pediatrics, the program provided tips for healthy eating that are fun and easy for the whole family. The Anne Arundel County Food Bank also shared information about its food programs throughout the County and the resources that are available to families.

Ready to Learn

In partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

Food insecurity negatively affects 1 in 4 Anne Arundel County Public School students. Participants learned about the challenges to learning that are brought on by food insecurity, ways that families can take action to increase nutrition affordably at home, and the resources that are available to families. Listen to the 30-minute panel presentation featuring AACPS Nutrition experts, Carrie Foye and Stacey Mazcko, moderated by Melanie Kincaid, Communications & Development Manager of the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.
