Food Demos with Cornell Cooperative

Leave a comment

For the past 3 weeks, the residents at Intervale Green have been participating in weekly food demos held by the Cornell Cooperative. The classes focus on health and nutrition and provide information on what to look for on nutritional labels, the standard serving sizes for grains, protein and dairy as well as how to manage salt and sugar intake. Each class includes a food demo related to the weekly lesson. Last week the residents made a beet, apple, ginger and cucumber slaw and this week they made a black bean and corn salsa. Everyone seems to enjoy the food and the information provided. I can’t wait to see what they cook up next!
