Project Oasis

Project Oasis is a one-of-a-kind food and nutrition 8-week program that explores healthy eating by focusing on consuming increased amounts of fruit and vegetables.

In 2009, Hebni developed an 8-week nutrition program called Project Oasis which works with families from underserved communities in Orange County to provide hands-on cooking classes and nutrition education centered on increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables. Project Oasis teaches participants how to cook healthy food, gives them up to 8 servings of fruits and vegetables each week with a recipe card and cooking utensils to help them make healthy meals at home. Health screenings for cholesterol, glucose levels, blood pressure, and Body Mass Index (BMI) measurements are provided in addition to weekly consumption surveys to assess the amount of fruits and vegetables the family consumes each week. Hebni offers easy access to nutrition education programs, free health screenings, healthy cooking classes, and nutrition counseling from African-American registered dietitians.

Each week, participants receive recipe cards highlighting a healthy meal and can pickup a bag of produce from our Fresh Stop Bus to prepare a healthy meal. Hebni uses pre- and post-tests, behavior surveys, and weekly consumption surveys to measure changes in knowledge and behaviors. Hebni also measures pre- and post- blood glucose levels, cholesterol, blood pressure, and BMI for each participant to measure changes in health outcomes.

Biometric screenings/labs
Educational materials
Fresh produce available each week
