|Learn about nutrition and meal preparation through Project Strength beginning Feb. 21|
Learn more about health and how to plan healthy meals with limited resources through a new free program being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
The program is called Project Strength and was designed by the Harvesters Community Food Network. This class is for ages 18 and older and it is asked that children not attend the weekly sessions. The program will involve hands-on cooking instruction and information about comparison shopping. Each week, participants will go home with approximately 20 pounds of food to aide them in meal preparation for the coming week. Participants must commit to all eight programs and participate in lessons and clean up. Participants who arrive more than 15 minutes late or who leave early will not be eligible to receive groceries that day.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under adult and then under fitness & health. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “nutrition.”
This program will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday beginning Feb. 21 at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood, Roeland Park. This is a free program. Participants may repeat the course one year after their initial participation.
