📢 Upcoming Building Nourishing Pantries Training!

Building Nourishing Pantries (BNP)

Calling all distributions! BNP is a unique training created for pantry staff and volunteers who want to learn best practices for creating trauma-informed, neighbor-centered food distributions. In this two-session virtual training, we will:

  • Discuss the science behind trauma and resilience
  • Review best practices for creating welcoming, dignified, trauma-informed food distributions
  • Show an example of modifications you can make to your distribution’s interior and exterior space
  • Discuss easy ways to incorporate nutrition education and cultural and dietary accommodations into your space
  • Review customer service policies and conflict prevention best practices

No matter the shape or size of your distribution, BNP has something for everyone. All participants will leave the training with a custom resource list.

Cost: $35, Free for CalFresh Healthy Living (CFHL) agencies and the pantries working with them (see below)
