      EVENT DETAILS
      A Taste of African Heritage

      Diabetes is not a part of African heritage.
      Neither is heart disease.

      Together, we can reclaim health by reclaiming history.

      Traditionally, African American ancestors ate a delicious, plant-based diet that was high in flavor and naturally low in cholesterol, sugars, and excess sodium. A Taste of African Heritage is a six-week cooking program that brings this savory traditional way of eating back to life to improve health and wellbeing.

      This FREE six-lesson nutrition and cooking program is presented by Oldways on Thursday evenings, August 28th through October 2nd. Participants are encouraged, but not required to attend all six workshops.

      Many of today’s healthiest foods have their roots in African heritage -- leafy greens, sweet potatoes, millet, and okra to name a few. Join us for this powerful program, as we reconnect to those foods and a long lineage of healthy eating that has the power to heal and inspire.
