The Key To Low-Income Family Nutrition

Food Hero to the rescue!

The key to low-income family nutrition might just not be building a supermarket in a food desert. The Oregon State University Extension Service launched a social marketing program, Food Hero, back in 2009 to encourage healthy eating among low-income Oregonians. 

Medical.net reports on two new research studies from Oregon State University. "The success of the program is by far exceeding the scope of what we envisioned when we started," said Melinda Manore, a professor of nutrition in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at OSU and co-author of the studies. "Getting people to change their diet and eating behavior, especially when they do not have much money, is very difficult, and this program is helping to do that."
