Lunch & Learn offered at Spectrum Generations
Rockland — Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine — a national nonprofit organization that promotes preventive medicine, particularly good nutrition — is offering a cooking demonstration with a three-course lunch featuring locally grown food from Hatchet Cove Farm to introduce residents to methods for weight loss and improved health through proper diet and nutrition.
Lunch & Learn will be offered Monday, July 9 at 11 a.m. at Spectrum Generations, 61 Park St. in Rockland. There is an $8 donation for the program. To register, contact Spectrum Generations at 596-0339 or email@example.com.
The challenge is not only to teach people which foods are good for them, but also to show them how to make the foods taste good. This class introduces attendees to important nutrition topics as local cooking instructor MiMi McGee guides students through the preparation of tasty and easy-to-prepare recipes.
