    About Me

    Renee provides research-based nutrition education to low income audiences in Allegheny County. Her educational programs help individuals, families, and youth with limited resources enhance their nutrition, increase their physical activity and develop life skills needed for self-sufficiency and better health. The classes are provided at no cost to eligible participants at housing developments, food pantries, Career Links, and other human service agencies reaching the low-income audience. Classes include hands-on activities and cooking demonstrations to enhance the learning process. The content promotes USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
     
    One of the main goals is to help participants better manage the resources available to them, such as SNAP benefits, the WIC food package, and items from local food pantries.
