Eating well in a round the world regatta is no easy task. On one hand, the nutritional requirements are incredibly high, and on the other the foodstuffs taken on board must weigh as little as possible, withstand a moist environment with huge variations in temperature and be storable in a safe and organised manner. Nutritional content needs to be high and to respond to the requirements of incredible physical and mental strain, often in extreme climate conditions. In this course you will learn about the types of food taken on board for a Barcelona World race, how menus are designed, and incorporating freeze-dried foods, which continue to maintain their organoleptic qualities despite undergoing manipulation to ensure they weigh as little as possible and are long-lasting and stable.

Food banks are important community organizations that provide charitable food assistance to food insecure households. Food banks rely heavily on donated foods and beverages and government supplied foods for their inventory. Until recently, there were no nutrition guidelines for food banks to follow in deciding the types of foods and beverages to accept, procure, and distribute. Recently, Feeding America, the national network organization of food banks, issued a nutrition framework to provide food banks with nutrition criteria for identifying healthful foods and beverages. Food banks are seeking direction in applying nutrition guidelines and generally how to move toward nutrition-focused food banking. This course will explain the importance of this shift toward healthier 'charitable' foods and guide participants through the process of developing food bank nutrition policies to help food bank staff and others in making nutrition improvements in food inventory.
