Healing Foods Project Goals
In the United States, those living in poverty all too often find themselves practicing poor dietary habits that put them at an increased risk for lifestyle-based diseases and health concerns. People with limited income are less likely to be armed with information they need to lead a healthier life and subsequently, feel better.
In 2013, McAuley House, in partnership with Mary M. Flynn, PhD, RD, L.D.N. launched the Healing Foods Project with the primary goal of combating the diabetes, obesity and heart disease that disproportionately impacts those living in poverty.
