My name is Delaney Feighan and I am a dietetic intern with The Ohio State University. I am currently doing one of my community rotations with OSU Extension Franklin County’s SNAP-Ed Program. Coming into my internship, I had a strong interest in community nutrition, especially women and children’s nutrition, and my rotation here has only increased that interest!
This week I had the opportunity to join SNAP-Ed Program Assistant, Angie Greene, at the Prairie Township Farmers’ Market to talk to the community about ways to get low-fat and fat-free dairy into their diet. We prepared a Hummus Dip (with chickpeas as a protein base) and a Southwestern Dip (with yogurt as a dairy base) for people to taste-test and vote on their favorite! This was a great opportunity to talk with the community, provide information on our classes, and encourage healthful dairy intake. To my surprise, the southwestern dip won, as I am a huge hummus fan, but the people have spoken!
