Scranton, PA—Case managers and administrative staff from The Wright Center for Community Health provided 75 clients with healthy summer produce and canned goods on Wednesday, August 28. The group worked with a registered dietician to select fresh and healthy items like chicken breasts, eggs and oranges for the giveaway and provided recipes to encourage development of new cooking skills and self-sufficiency.
In alignment with its commitment to eliminating food insecurity and engaging individuals in appropriate healthcare services, United Way of Wyoming Valley provided funding for this special initiative.
