Nutrition Month: Travel With Your Tastebuds

Let’s celebrate that! Join us on a trip to entice your tastebuds, be immersed in a cultural excursion, and learn a new recipe! Where will we be travelling to? You’ll have to join us to find out! In this session we will touch on the cultural, social, and emotional benefits of food, explore a cultural cuisine, share a delicious and nutritious recipe, and identify ways to connect with others through food (even virtually).
