Nutrition Education in our Teaching Kitchen

Taste it!

We are lucky to have a 30-seat teaching kitchen at our Program site.  Here students and community groups can bring in the harvest they have collected from the fields and orchards and taste it!  Hands-on activities in the kitchen are a designed to encourage people to try new produce and teach basic preparation. By creating a positive experience with healthy food, we change knowledge and attitude.

Let’s work together to shape a visit to the farm and teaching kitchen with the goal of encouraging healthy eating.  Contact us for more details.

Registered Dietetic Internships

Are you looking for a community rotation in completion of your studies as a Registered Dietician?  Interns will design and implement community-based programming in nutrition education. For more information, please review Internship and Service Learning Opportunities on our WCRC website.

Nutrition Education in the Food Pantry

We support food pantries that wish to integrate nutrition programming into their organizations and operations. This programming is a great learning opportunity as a part of an internship, capstone, or practicum for students interested in nutrition and public health. Our programming is outlined in our Nutrition Planning Playbook, which is available on the WCRC-OM website.

If you are a food pantry in Mesa, Delta, Montrose, or Ouray counties and want to borrow our Tasting Kit to test out a tasting program, please contact Amanda McQuade at 970-462-2113.
