ShopRite Celebrates National Nutrition Month
In celebration of National Nutrition Month, select ShopRite stores will host special events and in-store demonstrations throughout March.
With its commitment to making eating healthy easy and enjoyable, the events compliment ShopRite’s comprehensive nutrition services – including free counseling with a registered dietitian, grocery store tours, product samplings and cooking classes.
Additionally, ShopRite’s team of over 100 dietitians will be participating in a variety of community events in conjunction with local organizations and government agencies to officially designate the month as “National Nutrition Month.”
Founded in 2006, ShopRite’s Registered Dietitian program has over a hundred registered dietitians servicing ShopRite locations across the Northeast. ShopRite’s Registered Dietitians also work in tandem with ShopRite chefs to host culinary workshop classes.

“Everyone on our team looks forward to celebrating National Nutrition Month because not only is it a great time to highlight our company’s commitment to providing free health and wellness resources to our shoppers, it also allows us to share the expertise of our in-store nutrition experts with our partners in the local communities,” says Natalie Menza-Crowe, MS, RD, Director of Health and Wellness at ShopRite.
Highlights of the month-long celebration at ShopRite include:
ShopRite’s in-store dietitians will offer complimentary individual nutrition counseling, classes, group tours and other events. Look for special events to take place on Wednesday, March 14, 2017 – which is designated as “National RD Day.”
- ShopRite dietitians will be participating in community events that officially designate March as “National Nutrition Month.” Last year, over 100 local mayors and elected officials took part in events throughout ShopRite’s trading area to officially declare the month “National Nutrition Month.”
National Nutrition Month is an educational campaign organized every March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics designed to emphasize the importance of developing and maintaining healthy eating choices and physical activity habits. This year’s theme, “Go Further With Food,” was chosen to encourage consumers to achieve the benefits healthy eating habits offer.
- Select ShopRite stores (Village) will be participating in a “March Into Wellness” program. During the event, customers can stop by to get a free health screening, pick up healthy recipes and food samples, and learn more about nutrition programs available in the community.
