DH is piloting a nutritional education program to assist residents of local shelters with valuable information on how to prepare food cost effectively. Mariah Reynolds, a local teacher and community advocate with years of food knowledge, has passionately spearheaded the initiative and organized the first class earlier this week at F.R.E.S.H Start, a comprehensive educational, vocational, and economic housing program in Fort Walton Beach. A total of 12 women from the program attended the class.
Mariah provided folders and info-sheets on multiple recipes including how to prepare and roast a whole chicken, Chicken Soup with Rice and Noodles, and Italian Bean Stew. She also included safe handling tips and techniques on additional sheets.
DH brought a chicken 🙂
The whole room was truly engaged with the content and happy to have a discussion about food and food preparation. It makes a big difference for those attending to simply have something like this course to look forward to.
DH is grateful for Mariah’s passion to make this effort a reality. She is planning more of these classes throughout the year. We are so excited.
