Nutritional Counseling at Jewish Family Services

Lynn Malkoff, Nutritional Consultant

Since 2015, Lynn has been working with JFS food pantry clients to inspire healthy eating through education, encouragement, and empowerment. During her private counseling sessions, which are offered to clients at no cost, Lynn has taught our clients how to optimally fuel and nourish the body using a key science-based guiding principle of nutrition: nutrient-dense foods promote health and prevent disease. Lynn encourages the clients to incorporate a more plant-forward menu utilizing the essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables as well as alternative plant proteins, such as beans, and offers guidance in creating meal plans. Clients learn how proper nutrition supports the body’s ability to function at its highest capacity both physically and mentally.
