Nutrition is for Everyone Arkansas (NIFE AR) has been working hard to wrap up the grant in its final month. They've made arrangements with three existing organizations that will continue NIFE AR after the grant ends. Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance, Arkansas Special Olympics, and Arkansas Disability and Health have all taken on the mission to continue increasing fruit and vegetable intake and overall nutrition education with their programs. They have agreed to continue offering adapted cooking classes throughout the state and also to continue offering NIFE AR adapted nutrition education materials in one-day classes, Live Healthy events, and online video series.

NIFE AR launched their second video in their adapted recipe YouTube series, Nutrition is for Everyone Arkansas. Carly Luck lead with an instructional video demonstrating a Tuna Wrap recipe. Check out the link.

NIFE AR also hosted a Live Healthy Event with Special Olympics in Russellville, Arkansas, where they offered nutrition education and nutrition games to over 200 athletes at their Basketball Games. They handed out free snacks such as bananas, peanut butter, oranges, raisins, and celery. The athletes enjoyed all their healthy snacks and many of them used it for fuel to compete!
