NJ Dept. of Labor awards $59,000 to fund mobile food literacy center

VOORHEES, NJ – June 27, 2016 – The Camden County Library System is receiving a $59,000 grant from the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development to promote food literacy in Camden and other communities throughout the county. The money will be used to fund a mobile culinary center designed to help foster literacy skills focused on nutrition, food selection and food preparation in communities around the County with low literacy levels and particularly in those like Camden designated as ‘Food Deserts’ by the US Department of Agriculture.

A centerpiece of the program will be a mobile kitchen complemented by a collection of books about nutrition, healthy eating and consumer literacy with iPads and a mobile hotspot available. The kitchen can be transported to any of the library’s eight branches and other locations to demonstrate cooking techniques and recipes.

The program will help residents at the lowest levels of literacy gain skills in reading, consumer math, converting recipes, interpreting nutrition labels and understanding supermarket signage. Other workshops will focus on healthy eating on a budget and ESL conversation classes centered on international cuisine.
