Produce Education and Enjoyment Loop (PEEL) at Concrete Jungle
Produce Education and Enjoyment Loop
Concrete Jungle’s nutrition education program, PEEL (Produce Education and Enjoyment Loop), lowers the barrier of distributing produce by providing direct education at food pantries about local produce and food preparation assistance with Concrete Jungle’s soup kitchen partners. The program was launched in 2018, but in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has focused primarily on grocery delivery clients by providing recipes and nutrition information with the food boxes delivered to clients. Concrete Jungle is looking forward to relaunching this program in full when safely able to do so.
