“Neighbor choice is important to offer because it goes beyond the physical benefit of them receiving food. By providing choices, we encourage the neighbor to choose foods that they are comfortable preparing, avoiding allergies, helping with dietary restrictions, or maybe even an opportunity to try new nutritional foods. Choice is an easy way to use the same allotment of foods to maximize health benefits and add another level of provision to the overall health of our neighbors’ well-being.”

Course Tutorial


We estimate 4 hours. It may take you a little more or less. This is a self paced course. One suggestion for reviewing is to break it up by doing 1 of the 7 steps a day.

There are lessons, topics, and activities. Lessons are the steps. The material within each lesson is a topic. There are also activities built-in. The course is linear, and you will need to complete everything in each lesson before it allows you to move on using the next lesson button. Click the first bullet in the activity box to get started in the lesson.

We recommend using a computer to take the course. It will be easier to view the documents embedded into the pages.
