Lakewood, CO—Natural Grocers has expanded its free Nutrition Education program, which has gone virtual since the start of the pandemic. The expansion includes personalized coaching sessions with Natural Grocers’ Nutritional Health Coaches (NHCs), and a guest presenter series geared towards providing education on health and wellness.
“We are so proud of our Nutrition Education department and the role our NHCs play in helping our customers achieve their health goals,” said Heather Isely, Natural Grocers’ Executive Vice President, in a press release. “Although we knew it was absolutely the right things to do, we were disappointed that we had to pause our in-person classes and coaching sessions at the beginning of the pandemic. While we look forward to offering these services in person when it’s deemed safe to do so, our new virtual program allows us to offer the same level of nutrition expertise to help our community members navigate their personal health journeys.”
