An Apple A Day

An apple a day will help an intern TODAY! FYI - apple trees take 4/5 years to produce their first fruit and are picked by hand in the fall - this is very similar to our dietetic internship program.

$25

Broccoli Bushel

Broccoli was voted the most popular veggie in 39 states. The health benefits of broccoli include its ability to prevent, cancer, improve digestion, lower cholesterol, detoxify the body, and maximize vitamin/mineral uptake, very similar to how our programs dietetic interns help build the health our community and program mission.

$50

Kale is King

Our new BFF with Benefits. Kale is the most popular "Superfood" and is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Providing funding at this level will help our interns act as superhero’s, dramatically increasing the total nutritional profile of individuals and the community as a whole.

$75

The "Whole" Avocado

Avocado have heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, are loaded with fiber, contain more potassium than bananas, and are high in antioxidants. This combination makes avocados weight loss friendly, heart healthy, and last but not least, taste incredible, just like the advice our dietetic interns offer during their counseling rotations at area health clinics. The interns are also the PITs of the avocado - professionals in training (PITs)

$100

Plant Based Protein Orchard

Almonds are edible seeds of the almond tree. Dietetic interns are the seeds that help our area hospitals screen for malnutrition and offer nutrition support. Almonds remain Fresno County’s top farm crop, however there are only 263 dietetic internship programs in the nation; help seed our program.

MyPlate Full Meal Plan

When you help at this level, you are helping our program focus on variety, amount and health for everyone. Our journey is shaped by many factors but this will help provide a colorful visual of providing the necessary food groups (i.e. Competency, experiences, rotations, etc.) for dietetic professionals to complete the program to become future Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
