Abstract--The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether a brief nutritional intervention providing easy, fast, nutritious plant-based recipes, tastings and education would improve nutritional knowledge and encourage preparation of more meatless meals in 100 mobile food pantry clients in America. A controlled pilot study was used to assess changes in nutritional knowledge (healthfulness of plant-based meals) and behaviors (preparing more plant-based meals at home) after a brief educational intervention. Significant differences in knowledge and behavior were seen within the treatment group and between the control and treatment groups over time. A targeted, brief educational intervention using quick, easy meatless recipes and food pantry ingredients to promote more plant-based meals cooked at home can positively affect dietary knowledge and behaviors in mobile food pantry clients.
Index Terms--food security; food pantries; food banks; low-income; plant-based meals
