Nutrition & Health Workshops

We're offering a series of our most popular nutrition workshops by renowned nutrition consultant and author Rita Madden MPH, RDN. Geared for families, adults and seniors, the free workshops are live streamed via ZOOM.

January: The Joy of Eating While Caring for Health
Tuesday, January 12, 7:00-8:00pm
“Healthy food doesn’t taste good”; we hear this all the time. However, healthy food does not need to taste like a cardboard box!  You don’t need to give up foods you enjoy for the sake of healthy eating.  The participant will learn ways to care for the health of themselves and their family while celebrating cultural traditions; all this without being on a restrictive, tasteless diet.  Tips for shopping, preparing and eating foods for weight loss/management and chronic disease prevention are highlighted.
Free. Donation suggested.

Activities for Teens and Young Adults

AMONG US GAME: The multi-player game takes place in a space-themed setting where players each take on one of two roles. Most are crew-mates and others are impostors - all predetermined. The goal for the crew-mates is to identify the impostors, eliminate them from the game, and complete tasks around the map. The impostors' goal is to eliminate the crew-mates without being identified. Each game is moderated by a Y Staff member.
