A festive feast is one of the things we love most about holiday celebrations, but it’s difficult to find ways to keep leftovers from going to waste. Looking for a way to transform the leftover fare from your holiday dinner into a healthy meal for your family to enjoy? A frittata is a great way to repurpose your uneaten meats and veggies into a yummy breakfast or light lunch! It’s easy to substitute the meats and veggies listed for whatever you have on hand for a personalized touch.
We’ve talked about food systems on our blog before, and its likely you’ve seen many efforts to donate to and highlight one component of our local food system: emergency food programs.
You already know that the food system refers to the production of food, policies surrounding food in communities, and our consumption habits. But what happens when our food system is not sustainable or equitable and cannot provide enough food for everyone? Unfortunately, this is the reality across America and the world today.
Last week, we talked about a central part of our work here at Pinnacle Prevention: food systems in Arizona. Our team has a vision for healthy communities across our state, and our primary way of achieving these food system goals is through systems change.
In general, systems change represents a shift in the way communities make decisions about services and programs, as well as the ways these services are delivered to citizens. This shift is made possible through partnerships and collaboration across communities, including direct community input, stakeholders and agencies. Systems change creates lasting impact on multiple levels of influence.
