Coastal Bend Food Bank Check Presentation

Healthy eating is a team effort. On February 6, Driscoll Health Plan presented a $5,500 check to the Coastal Bend Food Bank’s Culinary Kits for Kids Program. The program will provide at-risk children and their families a weekly food kit with fresh, pre-portioned food items, cooking tools and follow along videos for recipes. This will allow children to be introduced to healthy, nutritious meals as well as hands-on cooking experience. The Culinary Kits for Kids Program services for families who are food-insecure. One of the goals of the program is to bring an increase of vegetable preference and intake in families. “As we can partner with others, our hope is that we can get the message out and stressing the importance of good nutrition and that food can unlock so many different things for people, especially from a health standpoint," said Robert Morales, Coastal Bend Food Bank’s Development Coordinator. Driscoll Health Plan also donated six coolers to the program to help with food deliveries to those children’s homes.
