The Food Trust
“Project P.E.A.C.H.”

The Food Trust works to improve the health of children and adults, promote good nutrition, increase access to nutritious foods, and advocate for better public policy. Their SNAP-Ed project, “Project P.E.A.C.H.” (People Eating and Cooking Healthy), consists of the several components. Adults are reached through a variety of community settings, churches, libraries, schools, YMCA’s, health centers, low income housing units, corner stores, supermarkets and farmers markets that offer series and single nutrition and cooking workshops in eligible neighborhoods. School age children are reached through eligible schools in local school districts (Philadelphia (Partner with the Eat.Right.Now. Program), Allentown, Bethlehem, Chester Charter Community, William Penn, Norristown and Reading). Services range from classroom lessons, food tastings and caregiver workshops. School staff supports the nutrition program by conducting nutrition lessons and activities in their classrooms.  Preschool classrooms in Chester, Norristown and Reading receive nutrition education lessons conducted by a nutrition educator.

The Food Trust's mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food.
