Food Literacy at the Worcester Public Library through Nutrition Education and Healthy Cooking Classes
The Worcester Public Library (WPL) seeks to educate adult patrons on food choices for healthy living. The Worcester area has a high rate of nutritionally underserved residents who suffer from medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension. This grant would offer nutrition education and healthy cooking classes to WPL patrons, including seniors, those affected by homelessness, and low-income residents, to provide them with tools to learn how to plan, manage, select, and prepare healthy food.
