Nutrition Workshops

 Share a meal, learn more about nutrition, try out some new recipes.   With the support of the Nutrition Foundation we are planning to prepare and share meals with older people a bit tired of their usual fare.

We’ll talk about what we need to eat to stay healthy and together we will prepare, cook and eat delicious food.
