Health Committee Event – Our Healing Kitchen

After 8 intense classes, children and their parents learned how to meal plan, prepare and cook meals that are vegetable enriched for healthier lifestyles. On top of cooking skills, they also learned about bonding in the kitchen as a team. Our Healing Kitchen is fundamentally changing communities and the Fort Wayne NAACP Branch 3049 would like to thank St. Joseph Community Health Foundation and Parkview for sponsoring us facilitating the cooking class.
