New! Order FREE Recipe Booklets from Leah’s Pantry

DSHS purchased recipe booklets from Leah’s Pantry that WA SNAP-Ed providers can use as incentive items. There is no charge to your local program.  CTW staff will get them to you and the order form is below.

This booklet is a collection of 41 favorite recipes from Food Smarts workshops and the EatFresh.org website. Most are simple one pot/pan/bowl dishes that don’t require a lot of equipment. Many can be prepared without a full kitchen. You can also cut the recipe in half to make it for fewer people, or double it for a larger group.

This is intended to support Leah’s Pantry’s curricula and programs, including Food Smarts, the Nutrition Pantry Program, and Around the Table. However, they can be used alongside other WA SNAP-Ed programming. Please fill out the form below to let CTW know how many booklets you would like and where they should be sent. Each LIA can order up to 25 at a time.

New Nutrition Facts Label

Changes are being made to the Nutrition Facts Label. Manufacturers have until the year 2020 or 2021 to make changes depending on their annual food sales. Manufacturers that make $10 million or more in annual food sales need to make these changes by January 1st, 2020, while manufacturers that make less than $10 million in annual food sales need to make these changes by January 1st, 2021. These new requirements apply to all food sold in the United States, even food that is imported from other countries.

Below are resources you can use to help participants better understand the new label:
