We work to educate and inform children, adults and seniors about the importance of healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices.
In 2017, we hired a culinary expert, Dr. Desmonette Hazly, as the instructor for monthly classes, during which she conducted cooking demonstrations and directions on how to prepare the food they receive in simple and nutritious ways. We have been very pleased to add this new and dynamic approach to our Nutrition Education classes for adults.
Dr. Hazly has a wealth of experience in creating culinary arts programs that have an integrative health perspective that looks at nutrition and the preparation of meals as part of a person’s overall wellness. Her extensive background in medical social work and integrative health education allows her to use culinary arts to address health issues in the community.
The Food Bank aims to educate and inform those we serve about the importance of healthy diet and lifestyle choices.
