Event Description

Margaret Mary Health & Third Place invite you to the Power of Food, a cooking demonstration aimed at teaching participants how to use seasonal ingredients to prepare easy, delicious and nutrient-packed meals. Attendees will be educated on how what we eat has the power to prevent or better manage many chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia.

Margaret Mary’s registered dietitians will start the top of each hour with a presentation, lasting about 20 minutes. Following the presentations, participants will be invited to create and sample their own bowl meals made with freshly prepared whole grains, roasted vegetables, beans and a variety of toppings. A fresh fruit crisp will top off the evening.

Benefits for participants include:

  • Delicious and healthy food for free
  • Recipe packet and handouts full of tips and tricks for easy home cooking
  • Opportunity to speak with nutrition professionals from MMH
  • Socialize with your friends and neighbors in a welcoming environment
  • Opportunity to take ownership of your health
