Date:8/14/2009

received the Dannon Next Generation Grant in support of Operation Frontline, its cornerstone nutrition program. Operation Frontline uses cooking classes to teach nutrition to low-income families so they can maintain excellent nutrition on a limited budget. The Food Bank provides cooking classes, led by volunteer chefs and nutritionists, in partnership with Share Our Strength, a national non-profit focused on ending childhood hunger in the United States. The Tarrant Area Food Bank will provide a long-term solution to hunger and poor nutrition by teaching a six-week series of hands-on classes. Since the program's start in 2007, nearly 500 low-income families have graduated with new knowledge that will help them eat well and stay healthy. This year, the Food Bank estimates that it will serve more than 325 area families and their children.
