March is National Nutrition Month®, a nutrition education campaign that promotes the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating habits. National Nutrition Month® is sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This March, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee is recognizing National Nutrition Month® as we continue to work for our clients who not only lack access at times to enough food to provide for their households, but lack access to nutritious, healthful food to lead active and healthy lives.
