Pinnacle Prevention is inviting elders to share a special recipe for our Arizona Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program cook book!
You can share your recipe with Persephonie Devereaux, our outreach specialist, via email or phone call: firstname.lastname@example.org, (661) 221-2896.
We will send contributors a $25 VISA gift card.
Pinnacle Prevention has received funding from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to improve our Arizona Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). We are using some of these funds to create a cook book, comprised of Arizona seniors’ special recipes, which we will distribute for free to SFMNP participants. This initiative is the result of feedback we’ve received from SFMNP participants over past years: they’ve expressed desire for inspiration on how to utilize the locally-grown produce they’ve purchased with their SFMNP coupons at participating vendor locations.
About the USDA grant: The United States Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service (USDA FNS) has awarded AZ Senior FMNP $1.1 million over the next two years to expand service area and implement program improvements, including stipends for Senior FMNP host locations, technology improvements, CSA supplies and distribution reimbursements, outreach and marketing initiatives, and transportation solutions. Pinnacle Prevention is excited to collaborate with AZ's Department of Economic Security to steward nearly 2X the food dollars, and we commend FNS for its great flexibility in funding.
