Healthy Cooking Classes Open to Clients

The East Bay Food Pantry is pleased to announce the first in a series of Healthy Cooking Classes to be held on Friday, February 10th at 11:00 am in the Franklin Court Community Room on Wood Street in Bristol.  The classes will be taught by Heidi Hetzler, MS, RD, LDN who is the Program Coordinator with the USDA SNAP-Education Department and are open to EBFP clients.

The classes are designed to show how easy it is to prepare a delicious and nutritious meal with ingredients available on food pantry shelves.  The class on February 10th will feature the recipe “Pasta with Greens and Beans”, which will be prepared on site and then sampled by participants.  As an added bonus, each client participant will receive a bag containing all the ingredients to make the featured recipe at home.  These grocery bags are graciously provided by the East Bay Cares program of the Bristol County Elks.

The EBFP’s current efforts include expanding healthy food options for clients and their children as part of the Access Nutrition Initiative.  The EBFP helps clients increase their understanding of good nutrition and support their use of healthy foods with an array of recipes, food tastings, and now, healthy cooking classes.  The EBFP is energized by the real potential for positive impact this initiative can make in the lives of some of the most vulnerable RI children and their families.
