Nutrition is part of everyday life. Almost every gathering of people has food involved. We participate in many community events from health fairs to community celebrations. We are part of your community!
It’s fun to taste a roasted beet and find its sweet flavor surprising or taste a delicious dish…made with black beans, which you were sure you disliked! That’s what food demonstrations are all about. Each demonstration is paired with a nutrition lesson by a nutrition educator.
Grocery Store Tours
Have you ever wondered what unit prices are or wished you knew how to read a nutrition label? Join a nutrition educator for an interactive Cooking Matters at the Store tour to learn how to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier choices, learn unit pricing and be able to prepare affordable meals.
Our nutrition educators teach free, interesting (and fun!) nutrition classes with adults and youth on topics such as healthy eating, basic cooking skills and grocery store savings. If you are an individual or an organization looking to take a class or organize a series of classes check out our offerings.
Let’s say you are driving a Maserati or a Bugatti. What type of fuel do you put it in? The best! If you want it to run right, if you want it to last 100k miles without any problems, you will use the best. Sure, you can put the cheap stuff in. Go ahead. But you might only get to 50k miles before you have a problem. It’s the same with fuel for your body! Sure, you can survive on junk. But you might live to 65. Do you want to live to 65, or do you want to live to 85 or 90 or even a 100? People are living past 100 these days! You can’t reach your full potential if you are putting the cheap fuel in your body. You gotta take care of your body! - ex-NFL star, Roland Williams, who grew up in downtown Rochester and founded Champion Academy
