In an effort to educate recipients on the importance of balanced nutrition, and the impact of developing healthy eating habits at a young age, the Food Bank Coalition is working in partnership with the Network for Healthy California, SLO County Department of Education, SLO County Department of Social Services, local school administrators, staff and family volunteers. We strive to make sure that children don't lose focus on their school work, get frustrated, and skip homework once or repeatedly because they are hungry.
