August is Canned Tuna Month
Price: $0.30 per ounce, $1.50 per 5-ounce can
Not only is tuna cheap, but it’s a rich source of Omega 3’s and easy way to get the omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA. (which play a crucial role in brain health). These are healthy unsaturated fats that might improve blood vessel function, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Please help us help those in need by stocking our shelves this month with protein and omega-3 packed canned tuna.
Feed the Need in Durham provides perishable as well as non-perishable food.
