Shore Teams with Banzo to Offer the “Shore Special” During National Nutrition Month

March 02, 2018

You’ve heard of the Philly Special in the Super Bowl….but have you heard of the Shore Special in the Banzo Bowl????!!!

Shore Medical Center is partnering with Banzo, the plant based eatery located at The Exchange in Linwood, NJ, to help raise awareness for National Nutrition Month in March. The National Nutrition Month theme this year is “Going Further with Food,” which emphasizes that choosing the right foods can make a big difference in your daily performance. With its nutrient-packed plant-based menu, Banzo is the perfect place to offer a menu item specially developed by Shore Medical Center’s registered dietitians under this theme. 

Throughout March, Banzo will offer its customers a version of its Banzo Bowl called the “Shore Special”. The Shore Special’s ingredients are:

  • Protein: Meatballz
  • Spreads: Skordalia (a Greek garlic and almond spread), Tzatziki (a vegan version of cucumber yogurt sauce)
  • Toppings: Artichokes, Shredded Romaine, Watermelon Radish Crunchy Salad, Hemp Seeds
  • Dressing: Lemon Ginger Cashew

The Shore Special is available for $10, plus tax. The contents of the Shore Special were selected by Saba Zahid, a registered dietitian from Unidine Corporation and the patient experience manager for Shore Medical Center’s food and nutrition services. Zahid oversees the medical center's patient food service program, clinical nutrition programs, and community nutrition initiatives. The “Shore Special” will be available starting Monday, March 5 and will continue through the end of the month. Banzo is located at 2110 New Rd, Linwood, NJ 08221.
