Healthy Schools Programs

Ferreira Foodtown

Here at Ferreira Foodtown, we believe it is important to not only provide quality foods and service to our community, but to give back as well. Through our Healthy Schools Program, we provide live classroom demonstrations and education with registered dietitian Jacqueline Gomes. We have worked with schools in Jackson Heights, Jamaica and New Hyde Park, but are always open to new opportunities.

Who is Jacqueline Gomes?

Jacqueline Gomes is a Registered Dietitian. Jacqueline subscribes to the philosophy of “all foods fit”; and gives consumers valid, timely and science-based information on leading a healthy life, preventing and managing disease while enjoying their favorite foods. “I love to teach, and giving consumers the proper tools and advice to make the best decisions they can at store level is one of my main priorities. Now more than ever, consumers are looking to food as preventative medicine; there is no better place or time to teach people about food and better-for-you products than at the grocery store.”

She began her career as a clinical dietitian and went on to a private practice, providing dietary counseling and education to clients. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Monmouth University, New Jersey. She has completed an MBA in Corporate Communications from Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey and completed her post-graduate dietetic internship program at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
