BITE TO BALANCE

BITE TO BALANCE is an innovative program at Highland Hospital that combines nutrition education, cooking classes, and community-building to combat the effects of adult and pediatric obesity. The partnership between Mandela MarketPlace and Highland Hospital works to improve healthy food access in patients by enrolling patients in FRESHCREDS, a program in which participants receive a 50% DISCOUNT on fruits and vegetables at select stores and produce stands, including a weekly produce stand within the hospital. Enrolled patients also attend bi-weekly classes led by Highland dietitians, nutrition educators, and community members.
