Comprando Rico y Sano
Comunidades Unidas’ nutrition program is based on the Comprando Rico y Sano
(Buying Healthy and Delicious) curriculum from UnidosUS. We provide our community members with nutrition workshops, cooking demonstrations, store visits and Food Stamps enrollment.
Our program educates the community about healthy lifestyles and eating habits. It also helps with the reduction of stress associated with shopping and preparing meals for the family. The curriculum provides culturally and linguistically appropriate information to ensure we maintain our cultural roots when buying and cooking food.
Our workshops (known as talleres) are provided on a regular basis by Promotoras. Talleres take place in Promotora’s neighborhoods and at strategic locations throughout the state. We also provide cooking demonstrations for children and adults as well as store tours where families can learn how to buy nutritious and delicious food on a limited budget.
