Healthy Nutrition Initiative

A felt need identified by the community is for improved nutrition through education and increased access to healthy foods.

Nutrition Education

Belong! collaborates with INOVA Healthy Plate Club to offer children a week-long course on nutrition education and healthy snacks. This summer,  we’ll offer this course on Zoom, where kids will play fun games while learning about healthy food options. Bags of supplies will be provided to each participant, including recipes and food items, so kids can experiment with their families to make and try new foods.

Farmers’ Market

Belong! partners with local churches and community volunteers to host a monthly Farmer’s Market at the Vienna Park Apartments, through which families can have access to fresh produce and enjoy community engagement. 

Note: Due to COVID, this program has been suspended until further notice.
