Nutrition is for Everyone Arkansas (NIFE AR) hosted their third large-scale training, Train the Trainer's course, in Texarkana, Arkansas. During this course, NIFE AR educated disability facility employees on how to host and teach a 6-week adapted Cooking Matters class series. Each employee plans to begin offering a class in their facility. NIFE AR have now trained over 100 employees to teach the adapted Cooking Matters class! See a video of their training here. NIFE AR also began its first six-week adapted Cooking Matters class at Pathfinders, a local disability facility, in Jacksonville, AR.

NIFE AR also hosted a Live Healthy Event with Special Olympics where they offered nutrition education to over 100 athletes at their basketball tournament. They also handed out free apple slices and celery sticks paired with peanut butter for a healthy snack option!

Lastly,  NIFE AR has begun filming their YouTube series with their nutrition advocate, Carly Luck. The series will contain videos of their adapted recipes, nutrition tips, and exercise advice. The series was launched on KATV 7 news, a local new station, on February 5th.
