Just Say Yes to Fruits & Vegetables Demonstrations

Food Bank of Central New York's dietitians and nutritionists deliver comprehensive Just Say Yes to Fruits & Vegetables (JSY) nutrition education sessions on site at food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens.

Our JSY demonstrations promote increased fruit and vegetable consumption through a series of nutrition education workshops tailored to encourage healthful eating and food preparation. Each workshop provides practical nutrition information using USDA approved lesson plans, cooking demonstrations, and recipes containing fruits and vegetables.

Hosting a workshop is a great way to encourage and teach clients easy ways to utilize the fresh produce coming into your site. Our nutritionists and dietitians are there to answer questions and provide helpful tips on healthy living and food preparation.

If you are not able to host a workshop at your site, ongoing classes are scheduled throughout the year and a calendar of events can be viewed on the JSY website. Most workshops are open to all but we suggest calling ahead to ensure that there is enough room for you and your guests.

For questions or to schedule a JSY workshop at your site, please contact one of our JSY nutritionists:
