EatFresh.org Promotional Videos + New YouTube Channel

We can’t think of a better way to launch our new EatFresh.org YouTube channel than with four beautifully produced EatFresh.org promotional videos. We worked with Plus M Productions this past summer to tell the story of EatFresh.org and how it easily integrates into everyday life. These videos are available for partners to play in any public space – lobbies, waiting rooms, healthcare centers, or wherever your clients hang out. You can also embed them onto your website or share them on social media. Contact Jessica Silldorff (jessica@leahspantrysf.org) if you would like to have the original video files or a DVD.

EatFresh.org Mini Course Launch and User Testing

The EatFresh.org Mini Course, our new online SNAP-Ed nutrition class, is up and running! Over the past couple of months, we have been testing the Mini Course with groups of people in San Francisco and San Diego counties to gather feedback about usability and content. We are currently resolving a few log-in and flow issues, but the content has been praised by nearly every tester!

You can try it now too. Click on the button that reads "Take the free EatFresh.org Mini Course" from the EatFresh.org homepage to get started. We are continuing testing through the end of December, so if you are interested in testing the EatFresh.org Mini Course at your site, contact Erin Franey (erin@leahspantrysf.org) for more details.

Middle Eastern and African Recipes Added to EatFresh.org

Leah’s Pantry’s new cookbook, Around the World at the Farmers’ Market: Recipes from San Diego’s African and Middle Eastern Community Cooks, includes recipes developed with Iraqi, North African, and East African community members in San Diego. In collaboration with the International Rescue Committee San Diego, United Women for East African Support Team, and UC San Diego – Center for Community Health, we hosted cooking and taste testing parties to create affordable recipes inspired by their culture’s cuisine. The recipes are available on EatFresh.org in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Many of the recipes also include step-by-step photo directions!
