Catholic Charities’ Food for Seniors program seeks a Nutrition Education Volunteer for support of their program. Food for Seniors provides monthly food boxes of non-perishable items to people age 60 + years who qualify based on their income. We serve over 30,000 seniors throughout the state of Louisiana.
The Nutrition Education Volunteer is a small, project based volunteer position. The volunteer will work to provide relatable nutrition education handouts for program participants. The volunteer will create 2 - 3 (or more!) printable materials for distribution to clients discussing a variety of nutrition and health related topics. This information should be relatable and easily understood by the program participants and cover topics such as: nutritious ways to use the provided foods, the importance of a healthy diet to overall health, the importance of health care, nutritional values of food, ways to serve special nutritional needs of participants.
This volunteer position is required to be filled by a professional nutritionist or dietician. It can also be completed by a college or graduate student studying to become a nutritionist or dietician.
This position can be completed remotely.
