Ochsner Eat Fit hosts the 9th Annual Eat Fit Dine Out event June 3-10 with a new addition this year – a nutritious food drive for local food banks.
During Eat Fit Dine Out Week, Ochsner encourages the community to celebrate Eat Fit partners by dining out at these restaurants.
Eat Fit dieticians also encourage residents to donate to local food banks during “Dine Out and Donate Week.”
The Eat Fit team invites diners to drop off their donations at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank or make a monetary donation at brfoodbank.org/eat-fit-dine-out-donate. Just $1 can provide up to 3 meals.
A full list of statewide participating restaurants and food banks is available at EatFitDineOut.com.
(Eat Fit is a nonprofit initiative of Ochsner Health, designed to help the community live their healthiest, strongest lives possible. The team of Eat Fit dietitians works closely with local restaurants, markets and other foodservice establishments to identify and develop dishes that meet the Eat Fit nutritional criteria. These items are identified directly on the menu with the Eat Fit seal of approval, making the healthy choice the easy choice when dining out.)
