Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health

Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition & Preventive Health Academic center for whole food-based research and public health nutrition.

Created through a generous gift from two of the world's most prominent advocates for whole grains and healthy eating, Bob and Charlee Moore, the Moore Family Center helps individuals and communities live healthier through good nutrition. The center builds upon synergies among research, education and outreach to bridge the science of whole foods and nutrition to its practical application in the community. It uses this interconnected model, including experimental learning, to train the next generation of nutrition educators.

Mission: The Moore Family Center is dedicated to helping individuals and communities live healthier through healthy foods and good nutrition. The Moore Family Center’s goal is to take a multidisciplinary approach to understand the role of all foods, including whole grains, in health promotion and disease prevention. The center builds upon synergies among research, education and outreach/practice to bridge the science of whole foods and nutrition to its practical application in the community.

We are excited to announce our Healthy Community Outreach 2020 mini-grant recipients:



🥦Using Food Hero recipes to improve food safety practices, a digital campaign.

Project leader: Mandy Hatfield, SNAP-Ed Douglas County.

This project aims to reach millions of people to increase food safety habits, especially for those eligible for SNAP benefits in Oregon. Objectives include development of food safety tools and messaging around seven food safety practices for the Food Hero Social Marketing Campaign.



🥦Healthy Communities – Teens as Teachers.

Project leader: Barbara Brody, 4-H, SNAP-Ed, FCH Malheur County.

This 4-H/SNAP-Ed Teens as Teachers project will partner with rural, under-served schools in Grant and Malheur counties to train the next generation of nutrition and healthy eating champions who will deliver evidenced-based lessons to youth in elementary schools within their communities.



🥦Walk the Stories.

Project leader: Erin Devlin, SNAP-Ed, FCH Clackamas County

The goal is to reinvigorate the Molalla StoryWalk project by supporting a local champion to repair signage and promote the project in the context of a new opportunity while schools and libraries are closed. During times of social distancing and online learning, the StoryWalks are extremely applicable because they allow for reading in public with adequate space between families.

Congratulations to all of the recipients. We are looking forward to seeing all of the positive influences these projects will have on Oregon communities.

Often times we think we need to completely change what we are eating to be healthier. Usually though, we can just make some quick swaps to add more nutrients to your meal. A great example is using whole wheat or oat flour to make pancakes instead of white flour. Equally yummy, and way more nutritious. 😍
