Make healthy choices the easy choice with resources for the food pantry! Encourage food pantry clients, volunteers, and staff to eat a healthy diet by creating an environment that empowers clients to make the best food choices with the Smart Selections Food Pantry Shelf Tags and Nutrition Tips Cards Kit.
The shelf tags are intended to help make the healthy choice the easy choice for food pantry clients. These MyPlate-inspired shelf tags are a set of small, laminated cards that can be used to identify and denote the nutritious food choices available in the food pantry directly on the shelves, racks, or displays. Foods depicted on the shelf tags are colorful, healthful, and budget-conscious foods.
The nutrition tip cards feature suggestions to use ingredients, simple meal ideas, and quick to make recipes for each food group. The nutrition tip cards feature limited text and enticing photographic visuals that offer suggestions for using common food pantry foods in healthful ways. The nutrition tip cards can be displayed directly on shelves or racks next to recipe ingredients to give food pantry clients meal ideas and recipe inspiration.
