There really is a need for better nutrition especially for children in our community. When children aren’t eating regular meals it can result in long-term development, cognitive and even physical health challenges that can tax the whole family.
Peoria, Il (PRWEB) July 19, 2015
AlignLife of Peoria wrapped up their fifth annual Thanksgiving in July canned food drive on Wednesday. Their efforts raised $180 in donations and 40 bags of food to donate to Peoria Area Food Bank. Each dollar raised will be able to purchase 5 meals for local families. The Peoria Area Food Bank provides food for 100 local food pantries and is the only food bank in Central Illinois associated with Feeding America.
Recent studies have revealed links between poor nutrition and a number of health conditions such as fatigue, depression, and even obesity. The Centers for Disease Control associate poor nutrition as a risk factor for the leading causes of death which include heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Andrea Schnowske D.C., owner of AlignLife reports, “There really is a need for better nutrition especially for children in our community.
