With help of a grant from the Maryland Agricultural Education and Rural Development Assistance Fund (MAERDAF) administered by the Rural Maryland Council, Women Supporting Women will be offering survivors the opportunity to participate in a healthy lifestyle class called “Cooking For the New Me!”, a series that will assist survivors and caregivers with taking control of their lifestyle choices in relation to food and nutrition.
Beginning late April, Chris Himmel and Henriette den Ouden of Habanera Farm will lead cancer survivors and caregivers in learning about creating positive changes in their lifestyles to create healthier outcomes. The series of four weekly classes will take place at Shore Appliance Connection in Salisbury and Go-Getters in Princess Anne, and will culminate with a seminar at Shore Appliance Connection by Perdue’s Corporate Executive Chef and a food scientist.
Space is limited, and time is running out, so please contact Women Supporting Women to register today.
