Open Door Celebrates National Nutrition & Reading Month in Port Chester

On Wednesday, March 27, Open Door continued celebrating National Nutrition Month and this year’s theme of “Beyond the Table” with a live cooking demonstration at our Port Chester site. Our Wellness staff, who are Registered Dietitian Nutritionists cooked a delicious, nutritious vegetable stir fry for attendees to enjoy.

We thank our staff and participants who helped make this a successful event. We also extend our gratitude to MVP Health Care for providing kitchen tools to attendees and coloring pages for the children, and Down to Earth Markets, who donated the fresh produce used for the recipe. We would also like to thank our partners from Family Services of Westchester’ss COMHPS team who assisted with the event and shared mental health resources.

March is also National Reading Month! We celebrated this observance by distributing books during the event, which were generously donated by United Way of Westchester and Putnam.
