The Interfaith Food Ministry is all about providing food to people in the community who cannot afford to buy what they need, but now they are also striving to make that food more healthy and nutritious.
That’s Interfaith food Ministries Executive Director Sue VanSon who says the idea was to study what foods they have been providing and where they would like to go.

We found from a survey of our clients that they receive from 50 percent to 80 percent of their food from the Interfaith food ministry .
Based on the UC Berkeley study, VanSon says Interfaith Food Ministry was able to work out a nutrition Policy. From the client survey they also found their clients favorite healthy foods are fresh fruits and vegetables. The foods most likely to be used are bread, fruit, vegetables, and organic.
