Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County (CCEUC) announces a free and fabulous Food Tasting to be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 12 pm to 2:30 pm at our newest Healthy Neighborhood Store, Peters Market, located at 7700 Route 209 in Napanoch.
Enjoy fresh and zippy flavors for free at a *tasting* of kale salad and mixed green salad at Peters Market. All the ingredients to prepare these tantalizing treats can be purchased at Peters Market. Recipe cards in Spanish and English will be available so you can learn to prepare these at home.
*The Community Food Tastings are hosted by the “Healthy Neighborhood Stores Project” and are FREE and open to the public. The Tastings offer food samplings to shoppers of easy-to-make, nutritious meals, snacks and beverages. All samplings are made with items that can be purchased at each market. Shoppers at each location receive free bi-lingual Spanish / English recipe cards and take part in a brief survey regarding food purchasing, cooking choices and barriers to the purchase of healthy foods.*
The Healthy Neighborhood Stores Project seeks to promote access to healthier foods in participating markets in food desert areas, and in so doing, strives to prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes. Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play is funded by the NY State Department of Health. This event is sponsored by CCEUC’s Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play.
