Eat the Rainbow: Nutrition & Agriculture in the Garden State

Sunday, March 24, 2019

Join Elyse from Farmers Against Hunger and Jeanne, Registered Dietitian from Virtua ,for a hands-on workshop, designed for ages 7-10, that features cooking and nutrition lessons focused on colorful NJ-grown fruits and vegetables.  Class will consist of 3 components: planting, nutrition and cooking.  Participants will discover why New Jersey is nicknamed “The Garden State”, acquire an appreciation for agriculture, gain knowledge about food sources and plant anatomy, and learn how they get from farm to table.  Students will be introduced to healthy eating guidelines and basic cooking concepts, and learn how they can help care for themselves, others and their environment by making smart food choices. $30
