Operation Frontline is a nutrition education and financial planning program run by City Harvest. This direct outreach program mobilizes culinary and nutrition professionals to teach cooking classes focusing on nutrition and food budgeting to people who are at risk of hunger and malnutrition in New York City.
These hands-on, interactive classes are provided at City Harvest agencies including community centers, food pantries, soup kitchens, after-school programs, senior centers, and rehabilitation centers throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Consisting of eight different curricula in five different languages, Operation Frontline is designed to meet the needs and interests of adults, children, teenagers, families, and persons living with HIV and AIDS.
In November/December, Aimee Adams volunteered her time as class manager in the program
“Well Seasoned: A Nutrition Education Program for Seniors”
Working with a nutritionist and chef, each week she went to Staten Island to shop, prep and assist a group of 6-8 seniors in preparing a meal that reflected that week’s nutritional lesson. For example, one week focused on: Medications and SideEffects; What to do when you’re not up to cooking. So the meal that week was a quick and easy corn chowder.
