Gaza: Efforts to deliver food aid to stricken north ‘largely unsuccessful’

The emergency relief agency said that a 14-truck food convoy – the first by WFP since it paused deliveries to northern Gaza on 20 February – was turned back by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) after a three-hour wait at the Wadi Gaza checkpoint .

“Even though today’s convoy did not make it to the north to provide food to the people who are starving, WFP continues to explore every possible means to do so,” said Carl Skau, WFP Deputy Executive Director.

After being turned away, the convoy was rerouted and then stopped by a large crowd of desperate people who looted the food, taking around 200 tonnes from the trucks.

Roads ‘the only option’

The agency also stressed that road routes are the only option to transport large quantities of food needed to avert families in northern Gaza.

Earlier on Tuesday, with the help of the Royal Jordanian Air Force, six tonnes of WFP food supplies for about 20,000 people were dropped for civilians surviving in the north.

Airdrops are a last resort and will not avert famine,”Mr. I’m stressed.

“We need entry points to northern Gaza that will allow us to deliver enough food for

Families in Crisis grateful for healthy donations from Killeen Community Garden

KILLEEN, Texas — Families in Crisis has served more than 700 citizens through their non-profit giving local homeless and domestic violence victims a place to eat and heal.

“We do see a higher disproportionate number of people with diabetes, cholesterol issues, heart disease, blood pressure problems. Good nutrition is a part of healing and we try to do that,” Executive Director Suzanne Armor said.

Armor adds what is normally available through her non-profit comes with a lot of carbs and sugar. With vegetables hard to come by, she’s grateful for the fresh vegetables at the Killeen Community Garden.

“We’ve had squash here, potatoes, onions, carrots, peppers, okra,” cook Arsean Session said.

The community garden was started in 2008 to educate the public about gardening. There are rows of vegetables, fruit trees, and flowers. The master gardeners have put in 2,400 plus hours of volunteer work to help serve the community. Last year they gave away 8,400 pounds of food through the homeless shelter.

“In the summer months, May June, and July we donate twice a week,” master gardener Dave Slaughter said

Even with the weather jumping from hot to cold and back in recent weeks, the garden has not been

This is the one protein mistake you need to avoid

Australians wanting to up their protein intake often eat a slab of meat – but dietitian Susie Burrell says this is not the answer.

Do you know how much protein you eat each day? Or, more importantly, do you know how much you need?

As we come to learn more about the importance of protein, especially when it comes to helping to optimize metabolism as we move through our 30s, 40s and beyond, we also come to understand that sitting down to a decent piece of meat or chicken at dinner will simply not cut it.

Rather, not only do most of us need greater amounts of high-quality protein in our diet throughout the day, but how and when we consume this protein is a lot more important than previously thought.

What is protein?

Protein is one of the three key macronutrients, the others being fat and carbohydrate.

1 ingredient 3 ways: How ‘Top Chef’ stars Gail Simmons, Tom Colicchio and Kristen Kish cook with cheese doodles

As 15 rising star chefs and James Beard nominees from across the country got ready for the season 21 “Top Chef” premiere, the show’s new host and two veteran judges joined “Good Morning America” ​​to show off their own culinary chops.

This year, the Emmy Award-winning series, which challenges chefs to push their culinary skills and creativity to the limits in an array of competitions, is set in America’s dairy land — Wisconsin.

How Students Can Develop a Healthy Relationship With Food — Syracuse University News

When students begin their Syracuse University journeys, not only are they beginning their professional pursuits, they’re also in charge of what they eat and when they eat—a new experience for many students. Routine home-cooked meals are replaced with busy, varied schedules and a plethora of choices in the University’s dining halls.

It’s a big change for students, one that, if not handled properly, could set them up for a lifetime of potentially unhealthy decisions involving food.

Deirdre Smith-Howard

Thankfully, for students who are struggling to maintain a healthy relationship with food, the Barnes Center at The Arch employs two registered dietitian nutritionists: Deirdre Smith-Howard and Kristin Douglas G’04, who have plenty of advice for students to develop healthy eating tendencies from their first day on campus.

“It’s a big transition for students. The change can bring both excitement and challenges. Many students are leaving home routines where there may have been more structure around meals. Students are now responsible for their own schedules and carving out time for meals. “If students are not prioritizing meals, it can be easy to fall into bad habits where they may be skipping meals or eating out more frequently,” Smith-Howard says.

“There is so
