Blythedale Children’s Hospital & Kohls Eat Well, Be Well Program, Feeding Westchester, and The Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry are piloting a food choice program in our Pantry to help clients identify healthier food options. Using bilingual signage, posters, and supportive materials, the organizations hope to show how simple, low-cost methods can facilitate the choice of healthier options for client—when selecting food items both inside and outside the Pantry. "Icon" signs have been hung in front of low sodium, low sugar, high fiber, whole grain, and other health-promoting options.
After the pilot evaluation, the nudge program is scheduled to roll out into other ‘choice’ pantries throughout the county.
Funding for the program is provided by Blythedale Children’s Hospital & Kohls Eat Well, Be Well Program.
