)-- Woodycrest United Methodist and Nourishing USA are pleased to announce Community Healthy Eating and Nutrition Classes for those in-need on February 16, 2011. In response to the scarcity of nutrition education within parts of New York City, Nourishing USA and Woodycrest United Methodist will be offering a nutrition class free to those in need on February 16th to help families and individuals that suffer disproportionately from poverty, obesity, and diabetes.
On February 16th, Nourishing USA will be sending nutrition volunteers to Woodycrest United Methodist. The goal of the day is to teach individuals and families how to use local and inexpensive resources to improve their overall nutrition. The program will focus on the use of fresh fruits and vegetables that can be grown locally and how to prepare them to reduce instances of obesity and diabetes as well as to use familiar foods such as quesadillas and make them healthy.
“We have been teaching healthy eating classes for about three years, and have gotten a wonderful reception and great results. We could not be more pleased to partner with Woodycrest United Methodist to expand the people we will reach,” says Nourishing USA Chef and CEO Gina Keatley.
To be a part of these great events, sponsor a class, or to get more details go to http://nourishingusa.org/ or mail us at 419 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10003.
