Making Healthy Eating Personalized & Fun at the Drop In Center

Published 07/17/2017

FHR’s Drop In Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, has continued to work on its health and wellness efforts all summer long. Along with a hot lunch, each day members have the option of choosing a salad with their choice of protein, vegetables, toppings, and dressing.

With staff support, members who are building their vocational culinary skills take lunch orders, and prepare each salad separately, making it personalized to include favorite ingredients.

“The number of salads has more than doubled since we implemented this choice,” said Dana Barnes, FHR Drop In Center Program Director. “We plan to continue to offer similar healthy selections as the mind and body go together, hand-in-hand.”
