Voedsel Tank

Die kookopvoeder van Arcadia Sentrum vir Volhoubare Voedsel en Landbou, JuJu Harris, het haar tyd onthou as 'n WIC -ontvanger, terwyl sy 'n kookboek ontwikkel het wat boere se markaanbiedings en meer bevat.


Hoe om goed te eet met 'n beperkte begroting, van 'n ma wat daar was?

JuJu Harris was nie van plan om 'n kookboek te skryf nie, maar sy wou ook nie openbare hulp aanvaar om haar seun te voed nie. Harris wou altyd met die natuur werk.

"My droomwerk was, ek sou grootword en 'n nasionale parkwagter word," sê sy. Dit het nie heeltemal so uitgewerk nie. Sy dryf van werk tot werk in Oakland, Kalifornië, waar sy gebore is. Op 32 het sy by die Peace Corps aangesluit en na Paraguay gereis om plaaslike boere te help om hul oeste te verbeter.

Terwyl sy veronderstel was om die mans te help - diegene wat die boerdery en die geld beklee het - was sy aangetrokke tot die vroue en kinders. Sy het die gesinne aangemoedig om hul geld in albei hul landboubesighede te sit en hulle kinders.

Ek het die belangrikheid van voeding vir vroue geleer en hoe dit haar gesin beïnvloed, "sê Harris. Toe die vroue hul dieet verbeter, het hulle ook meer geestelike energie gehad om met hul kinders om te gaan, sê sy.

Jare later, terug in die state, bevind Harris haar in 'n soortgelyke situasie - met klein kinders, nageboortelike depressie en min geld. Sy het geweet dat sy vir haarself beter moes sorg, en daarom het sy begin eksperimenteer met 'n tuin, brood bak en alles gedoen wat sy kon om die voedingsprogramme vir vroue, babas en kinders (WIC) aan te vul. Sy het haarself geleer om te kook met boerenkool, kolwer, kool en ander goedkoop en voedingsryke produkte. Bure het gekom. Sy het hulle ook leer kook.

Alhoewel sy nog nie haar droom bereik het om 'n parkwagter te word nie, spandeer Harris deesdae baie tyd in die buitelug.

Sy leer nou gesinne met 'n lae inkomste hoe om gesonde produkte te kies en te kook. Sy is 'n kulinêre opvoeder en SNAP -uitreikkoördineerder by die Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, 'n nie -winsgewende groep wat toegewy is aan die skep van 'n meer billike plaaslike voedselstelsel in die Washington, DC gebied.

Sy ry met die sentrum se mobiele markbus - 'n soort boeremark op wiele - na sommige van die armste woonbuurte in die stad.

Ek werk op die mobiele mark en praat met baie ma's, en baie van hulle sê vir my: Ek weet nie hoe om te kook nie. Baie van hulle is tienermoeders. Hulle tel groente op en sê: Ek weet nie wat dit is nie. Is dit goed? Is dit moeilik om te kook? ' & quot, sê Harris. So praat sy oor die pampoen en die Swiss chard en gee wenke oor hoe om dit op te slaan en te kook.

U kan die kos by mense se drumpel bring en dit bekostigbaar maak. Maar as hulle nie weet hoe om die beskikbare te kook nie, het u uiteindelik niks verander nie, 'sê sy.

Kookvaardighede is slegs 'n hindernis vir gesonde eetgewoontes. 'N Onlangse opname deur die nie-winsgewende organisasie Share Our Strength toon dat 85 persent van die lae-inkomste-gesinne sê dat gesond eet belangrik is, maar slegs 53 persent sê dat hulle die meeste naweke gesonde etes kook. 'N Meerderheid van die 1 500 respondente het gesê dat koste en tyd om te beplan, inkopies doen en kook die grootste hindernisse is om hul voeding te verbeter.

Nadat hy tientalle sulke gesprekke per dag gehad het, besluit Harris om 'n inkopiegids en resepteboek saam te stel wat sy aan hierdie ma's kan uitdeel.

"Niks fancy nie," sê sy, "net 'n bietjie op 'n mooi karton."

Sy het 'n paar van haar Arcadia -kollegas van die idee vertel, en hulle het haar gehelp om 'n stap verder te neem. Met die hulp van vrywilligers van Arcadia en 'n paar groot toekenningsgeld, publiseer Harris 'n kookboek wat 'n waardige koffietafel is. Dit bevat versadigde kleurfoto's en eenvoudige resepte wat voedselhulpmiddels soos melk, eiers en boontjies kombineer met seisoenale produkte-disse soos knoffel-koriander-vismarinade en beetgroen met wit boontjies en spek. Dit bevat ook wenke vir die oprig van 'n spens, en 'n seisoenale gids vir alles, van appels tot raap. Kliënte met voedselhulp wat die mobiele mark besoek, kan nou gratis kopieë van die kookboek kry. Die Arcadia mobiele mark seisoenale kookboek is ook beskikbaar vir die algemene publiek vir $ 20 per eksemplaar. (U kan dit hier bestel.)

Harris wil die woord voor Junie uitbring, wanneer die WIC -program begin om boeremarkte, wat ontvangers kan gebruik om items uit die Arcadia -bus en ander boeremarkte te koop, uitdeel. Dit is die geval wanneer jong mammas en ander met beperkte begrotings werklik hul gesondheid wil verbeter, sê Harris. Maar baie is bang om nuwe kosse te probeer uit vrees om geld te mors, sê sy, en gee hulle leiding, wat klein veranderinge voorstel, soos een nuwe maaltyd per week.

Harris het 'n maklike manier met hierdie mammas omdat sy dit verstaan. Sy was waar baie van die mense wat na die mobiele mark kom, nou is, sê Pamela Hess, uitvoerende direkteur van Arcadia en die redakteur-sowel as 'n alledaagse worstelaar-van die kookboek.

& quotJuJu is 'n deel van die fee -peetmoeder, 'n goeie heks. Haar tuin is ongelooflik - groot deurmekaar blomme en heuningbye en rose en groente wat op tralies klim, en altyd word nog 'n bed gelê. Haar kos dra dieselfde stempel van wilde en grillerige en fundamentele integriteit, ”sê Hess.

Ek dink sommige van hierdie programme-mense bedoel goed, maar hulle het nooit die lewe geleef nie. Ek was op WIC tot my kind 5 was, en 'n jaar het my man sy been gebreek. Ek het by 'n voedselbank gewerk, ek was op kosseëls, 'sê Harris. Sy het ook gehelp om vier stiefkinders en 'n neef groot te maak, en later 'n ander kind.

Sy sê sy doen net haar deel. Die probleem van voedselonsekerheid is so groot, ek doen net wat ek kan. En ek kan kook. & Quot Sy hoop dat die Arcadia -kookboek sal wys dat dit moontlik is om gesond te eet teen 'n begroting. Nie maklik nie, maar moontlik. & Quot

"My droomwerk was, ek sou grootword en 'n nasionale parkwagter word," sê sy. Dit het nie heeltemal so uitgewerk nie. Sy dryf van werk tot werk in Oakland, Kalifornië, waar sy gebore is. Op 32 het sy by die Peace Corps aangesluit en na Paraguay gereis om plaaslike boere te help om hul gewasse te verbeter.

Terwyl sy veronderstel was om die mans te help - diegene wat die boerdery en die geld beklee het - was sy aangetrokke tot die vroue en kinders. Sy het die gesinne aangemoedig om hul geld in albei hul landboubesighede te sit en hulle kinders.

Ek het die belangrikheid van voeding vir vroue geleer en hoe dit haar gesin beïnvloed, "sê Harris. Toe die vroue hul dieet verbeter, het hulle ook meer geestelike energie gehad om met hul kinders om te gaan, sê sy.

Jare later, terug in die state, bevind Harris haar in 'n soortgelyke situasie - met klein kinders, nageboortelike depressie en min geld. Sy het geweet dat sy vir haarself beter moes sorg, en daarom het sy begin eksperimenteer met 'n tuin, brood bak en alles gedoen wat sy kon om die voedingsprogramme vir vroue, babas en kinders (WIC) aan te vul. Sy het haarself geleer kook met boerenkool, kolwer, kool en ander goedkoop en voedingsryke produkte. Bure het gekom. Sy het hulle ook leer kook.

Alhoewel sy nog nie haar droom bereik het om 'n parkwagter te word nie, spandeer Harris deesdae baie tyd in die buitelug.

Sy leer nou gesinne met 'n lae inkomste hoe om gesonde produkte te kies en te kook. Sy is 'n kulinêre opvoeder en SNAP -uitreikkoördineerder by die Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, 'n nie -winsgewende groep wat toegewy is aan die skep van 'n meer billike plaaslike voedselstelsel in die Washington, DC gebied.

Sy ry die sentrum van die Mobile Market -bus - 'n soort boeremark op wiele - na sommige van die armste woonbuurte in die stad.

Ek werk op die mobiele mark en praat met baie ma's, en baie van hulle sê vir my: Ek weet nie hoe om te kook nie. Baie van hulle is tienermoeders. Hulle tel groente op en sê: 'Ek weet nie wat dit is nie. Is dit goed? Is dit moeilik om te kook? ' & quot, sê Harris. So praat sy oor die pampoen en die Swiss chard en gee wenke oor hoe om dit op te slaan en te kook.

U kan die kos by mense se drumpel bring en dit bekostigbaar maak. Maar as hulle nie weet hoe om die beskikbare te kook nie, het u uiteindelik niks verander nie, 'sê sy.

Kookvaardighede is slegs 'n hindernis vir gesonde eetgewoontes. 'N Onlangse opname deur die nie-winsgewende organisasie Share Our Strength toon dat 85 persent van die lae-inkomste-gesinne sê dat gesond eet belangrik is, maar slegs 53 persent sê dat hulle die meeste naweke gesonde etes kook. 'N Meerderheid van die 1 500 respondente het gesê koste en tyd om te beplan, inkopies doen en kook is die grootste struikelblok om hul voeding te verbeter.

Nadat hy tientalle sulke gesprekke per dag gehad het, besluit Harris om 'n inkopiegids en resepteboek saam te stel wat sy aan hierdie ma's kan uitdeel.

"Niks fancy nie," sê sy, "net 'n bietjie op 'n mooi karton."

Sy het 'n paar van haar Arcadia -kollegas van die idee vertel, en hulle het haar gehelp om 'n stap verder te neem. Met die hulp van vrywilligers van Arcadia en 'n paar groot geld, publiseer Harris 'n kookboek wat 'n waardige koffietafel is. Dit bevat versadigde kleurfoto's en eenvoudige resepte wat voedselhulpmiddels soos melk, eiers en boontjies kombineer met seisoenale produkte-geregte soos Knoffel-Koriander Vis Marinade en Beet Greens Met Wit Bone En Spek. Dit bevat ook wenke vir die oprig van 'n spens, en 'n seisoenale gids vir alles, van appels tot raap. Kliënte met voedselhulp wat die mobiele mark besoek, kan nou gratis kopieë van die kookboek kry. Die Arcadia mobiele mark seisoenale kookboek is ook beskikbaar vir die algemene publiek vir $ 20 per eksemplaar. (U kan dit hier bestel.)

Harris wants to get the word out before June, when the WIC program begins handing out farmers markets checks, which recipients can use to purchase items from the Arcadia bus and other farmers markets. That's when young moms and others on limited budgets who want to improve their health really come out, Harris says. But many are afraid to try new foods for fear of wasting money, she says, so she gives them guidance, suggesting small changes, like one new meal a week.

Harris has an easy manner with these moms because she gets it. She's been where many of the people who come to the Mobile Market are now, says Pamela Hess, Arcadia's executive director and the editor — as well as all-around-wrangler — of the cookbook.

"JuJu is one part fairy godmother, one part good witch. Her garden is incredible — great tangles of flowers and honeybees and roses and vegetables climbing trellises, and always another bed being laid. Her food bears the same stamp of wild and whimsy and fundamental integrity," Hess says.

"I think some of these programs — people are well-meaning, but they've never lived the life. I was on WIC till my kid was 5, and one year my husband broke his leg. I've worked at a food bank, I've been on food stamps," Harris says. She also helped raise four stepchildren and a nephew, and later had another child.

She says she's just doing her part. "The problem of food insecurity is so big, I just do what I can do. And I can cook." She hopes the Arcadia cookbook will show that "it's possible to eat healthy on a budget. Not easy, but possible."

Harris received Women, Infants and Children food assistance only for herself and her firstborn son.


How to eat well on a tight budget, from a mom who's been there

JuJu Harris didn't set out to write a cookbook, but then again, she didn't set out to accept public assistance to feed her son, either. Harris always wanted to work with nature.

"My dream job was, I was going to grow up and be a national park ranger," she says. It didn't quite work out that way. She drifted from job to job in Oakland, Calif., where she was born. At 32, she joined the Peace Corps, traveling to Paraguay to help local farmers improve their crops.

While she was supposed to be helping the men — the ones who held the farming jobs and the money — she found herself drawn to the women and children. She encouraged the families to put their money into both their agricultural businesses en their children.

"I learned the importance of nutrition for women and how it impacts her family," Harris says. When the women improved their diets, they had "more mental energy" to deal with their children, too, she says.

Years later, back in the states, Harris found herself in a similar situation — with small children, postpartum depression and little money. She knew she needed to take better care of herself, so she began experimenting with a garden, baking bread, doing whatever she could to supplement the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) food program staples she was receiving. She taught herself to cook with kale, collards, cabbage and other inexpensive and nutritionally dense produce. Neighbors came over. She taught them how to cook, too.

Although she has not yet reached her dream of becoming a park ranger, Harris gets to spend plenty of time outdoors these days.

She's now teaching low-income families how to choose and cook healthy produce. She's a culinary educator and SNAP outreach coordinator with the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, a nonprofit group dedicated to creating a more equitable local food system in the Washington, D.C., area.

She drives the center's Mobile Market bus — a kind of farmers market on wheels — into some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city.

"Working at the Mobile Market, I talk to a lot of moms, and many of them tell me, 'I don't know how to cook.' A lot of them are teen mothers. They pick up vegetables and say, 'I don't know what this is. Is it good? Is it hard to cook?' " Harris says. So she talks up the squash and the Swiss chard, offering tips on how to store and cook them.

"You can bring the food to people's doorstep and make it affordable. But if they don't know how to cook what's available, in the end, you haven't changed anything," she says.

Cooking skills are just one barrier to healthy eating. A recent survey by the nonprofit Share Our Strength shows that 85 percent of low-income families say eating healthy is important, but only 53 percent say they cook healthy dinners most weeknights. A majority of the 1,500 respondents said cost and time to plan, shop and cook are the biggest barriers to improving their nutrition.

After having dozens of these kinds of conversations a day, Harris decided to put together a shopping guide and recipe book she could hand out to these moms.

"Nothing fancy," she says, "just a little something on some nice cardstock."

She told a couple of her Arcadia colleagues about the idea, and they helped her take it a step further. With the help of Arcadia volunteers and some major grant money, Harris published a coffee table-worthy cookbook. It features saturated color photographs and simple recipes combining food assistance staples like milk, eggs and beans with seasonal produce — dishes like Garlic-Cilantro Fish Marinade and Beet Greens With White Beans And Bacon. It also includes tips for setting up a pantry, and a seasonal guide to everything from apples to turnips. Shoppers on food assistance who frequent the Mobile Market can now get free copies of the cookbook. Die Arcadia Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook is also available to the general public for $20 a copy.

She's now teaching low-income families how to choose and cook healthy produce. She's a culinary educator and SNAP outreach coordinator with the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, a nonprofit group dedicated to creating a more equitable local food system in the Washington, D.C., area.

She drives the center's Mobile Market bus — a kind of farmers market on wheels — into some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city.

"Working at the Mobile Market, I talk to a lot of moms, and many of them tell me, 'I don't know how to cook.' A lot of them are teen mothers. They pick up vegetables and say, 'I don't know what this is. Is it good? Is it hard to cook?' " Harris says. So she talks up the squash and the Swiss chard, offering tips on how to store and cook them.

"You can bring the food to people's doorstep and make it affordable. But if they don't know how to cook what's available, in the end, you haven't changed anything," she says.

Cooking skills are just one barrier to healthy eating. A recent survey by the nonprofit Share Our Strength shows that 85 percent of low-income families say eating healthy is important, but only 53 percent say they cook healthy dinners most weeknights. A majority of the 1,500 respondents said cost and time to plan, shop and cook are the biggest barriers to improving their nutrition.

After having dozens of these kinds of conversations a day, Harris decided to put together a shopping guide and recipe book she could hand out to these moms.

"Nothing fancy," she says, "just a little something on some nice cardstock."

She told a couple of her Arcadia colleagues about the idea, and they helped her take it a step further. With the help of Arcadia volunteers and some major grant money, Harris published a coffee table-worthy cookbook. It features saturated color photographs and simple recipes combining food assistance staples like milk, eggs and beans with seasonal produce — dishes like Garlic-Cilantro Fish Marinade and Beet Greens With White Beans And Bacon. It also includes tips for setting up a pantry, and a seasonal guide to everything from apples to turnips. Shoppers on food assistance who frequent the Mobile Market can now get free copies of the cookbook. Die Arcadia Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook is also available to the general public for $20 a copy. (You can order it here.)

Harris wants to get the word out before June, when the WIC program begins handing out farmers markets checks, which recipients can use to purchase items from the Arcadia bus and other farmers markets. That's when young moms and others on limited budgets who want to improve their health really come out, Harris says. But many are afraid to try new foods for fear of wasting money, she says, so she gives them guidance, suggesting small changes, like one new meal a week.

Harris has an easy manner with these moms because she gets it. She's been where many of the people who come to the Mobile Market are now, says Pamela Hess, Arcadia's executive director and the editor — as well as all-around-wrangler — of the cookbook.

"JuJu is one part fairy godmother, one part good witch. Her garden is incredible — great tangles of flowers and honeybees and roses and vegetables climbing trellises, and always another bed being laid. Her food bears the same stamp of wild and whimsy and fundamental integrity," Hess says.

"I think some of these programs — people are well-meaning, but they've never lived the life. I was on WIC till my kid was 5, and one year my husband broke his leg. I've worked at a food bank, I've been on food stamps," Harris says. She also helped raise four stepchildren and a nephew, and later had another child.

She says she's just doing her part. "The problem of food insecurity is so big, I just do what I can do. And I can cook." She hopes the Arcadia cookbook will show that "it's possible to eat healthy on a budget. Not easy, but possible."

Garlicky Kale Salad

From The Arcadia Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook

3 inches fresh ginger, peeled (ginger is easily peeled with the side of a metal spoon)

1 bunch kale, washed, de-ribbbed, and leaves chopped

1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced

In a blender, add the garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, ginger and black pepper, and puree. Using the lid opening, slowly add olive oil with the motor running on low to thicken the dressing.

In a large bowl, add kale, carrots, cabbage, cranberries and garbanzo beans. Pour dressing into the bowl and toss to coat. Mix thoroughly and let salad sit for at least 20 minutes. Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org.
