Nutrition Outreach Workers
Nutrition Outreach Workers at Balboa High School, Lincoln High School, and Willie Brown Middle School carry out nutrition-focused wellness initiatives at their school sites. NOWs promote California Specialty Crops available at local Farmers’ Markets to other students, staff, and families. NOWs engage their peers through taste tests of fruits and vegetables, educational events, and classroom presentations. Through their work, this group addresses issues of food justice and diet-based illnesses disproportionately present in their communities.
