March is Nutrition Month and we're inviting you to join Team No Kid Hungry! 

Donations are being taken at all dining retail locations and all proceeds will go to The BackPack Program for Food Bank of the Southern Tier. The BackPack program ensures that children in need don't go hungry over the weekend when they aren't in school. Every Friday, those children receive their food, placed discreetly into their backpacks. The need to supply children from low-income families is consistently rising. It only costs $3.00 to fill a backpack, but any amount helps!

The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Wednesday, March 26th. Important reasons not to miss the next screening:

1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)

2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases

3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease

4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive   (above ideal )

5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.

6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure

7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects

8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure
