Local Retail Dietitians Learn Ways to Include Dairy During COVID-19
Dairy’s nutrient-rich affordability – three servings can cost as little as $1/day – and the important role it plays in addressing food insecurity was a key message in a webinar hosted by ADA North East and the retailer GIANT Carlisle for more than 30 retail registered dietitians. Guest speaker Clancy Cash Harrison, registered dietitian, ambassador for National Dairy Council and spokesperson for ADA North East, shared the case for dairy in her presentation “Hunger: A Retail Dietitian’s Direct Response to COVID-19.” 

Retail dietitians from Giant Landover, Hannaford, Wegmans, Weis, Redner’s and Price Chopper also participated in the webinar, with a reach of more than 6,000 customers per month.
