From ocean to plate

Nutrition month theme modified to reflect a Campbell River harvest

Nutrition student Kelly Nelson is modifying the Nutrition Month theme Field to Plate to Ocean to Plate and the residents of Yucalta Lodge will benefit.

This special event is taking place at the Campbell River Adult Care Society (CRACS) at Altrusa Place on Larwood, Thursday, March 10 at 11:30 a.m.

Nelson, a Nutrition and Food Service Student at Langara College and Pam Mann, CRACS administrator are teaming up with a donation from Marine Harvest to offer the clients at CRACS and residents  from Yuculta Lodge a delicious, nutritious meal.

The meal is a component of  Nelson’s NFSM Diploma required practicum work.

March is Nutrition month declared by the Canadian Dietitians. The theme for March is: Field to Plate. The objective is to feature agricultural products harvested close to home.

The event will feature fresh salmon from Marine Harvest’s Quatsino Farm.

Many people don’t think of Salmon as an agricultural product. Nelson intends to highlight Marine Harvest’s fresh, nutritious salmon product that is harvested North of Campbell River and is transported right past our front door.

Nelson has been a chef for over 20 years and with his experience recognizes the value of Marine Harvest’s fresh salmon product. Now as a NFSM student, when given this assignment, he immediately considered fresh farmed salmon as his feature ingredient and so he slightly modified the Nutrition Month theme, to “Ocean to Plate.”
