The opportunity is open to 24 families in the Naples military community. Those interested in participating will be asked to attend a one-hour family orientation, tentatively scheduled at the end of February. By mid-April, the six-week Family Kit testing period will be concluded and the contributing families will be asked to provide feedback through an online survey. Participating families will be able to keep the whole package. Visit http://www.nourishlife.org/navy for more information and to register. For more information, contact Lt.
