THE NUTRITION CENTER
The Nutrition Center believes that every child in the Berkshires should have the right to make healthy food choices. Their Food Adventures program through local schools teaches cooking classes to children.
In the last school year Food Adventures reached 265 classrooms serving about 2,500 children. It is our goal to reach every classroom in Berkshire County – reaching all 18,593 school age children! With offices in Pittsfield, Lenox, North Adams, Amherst and Northampton. Sign the DECLARATION to Improve the Nutrition Status of Children in the Berkshires.

The mission of The Christian Center is: “Uplifting the community by empowering individuals with dignity, nourishment, and hope.”
