Healthy Eating Classes
In spring and summer 2011, we are engaging in a series of healthy eating classes and nutrition education activities with the East Atlanta Village Farmer’s Market.
We will also collaborate with the recently expanded Brownwood Park Community Garden.
The goal is to introduce our youth members, their families and the community to basic principles of nutrition and healthy eating, with a special emphasis on growing, harvesting, preparing and eating fresh fruits and vegetables. We will also learn about healthy snacks and meals that can be easily prepared with foods commonly available in local supermarkets, as well as at farmer’s markets and our own gardens.
