pregnant-mums-eating-healthy-foodThe Center of Community Health and Well-Being, the Sacramento County, and SNAP, by way of the Health Education Council are holding a three part series of healthy eating classes on July 9th, 17th, and 22rd.

“The Oak Park community is home to multiple resources for singles and families,” says Kristine Lee with the Center of Community Health and Well Being. “The classes specifically are addressing the learning needs of individuals. The diverse resources from organizations benefit the residents, and these classes about healthy eating suit the community because people want more knowledge about the choices they make. Classes allow individuals to learn for their own sake, and that of their household, creating a richer community that is well informed and prepared to share and give.”

Course material will include: ways to encourage kids to eat fruits and veggies, making good decisions with a busy schedule, incorporating exercise and stretching into daily routines, dealing with shopping problems, learning about CalFresh and more.

“The classes introduce information to encourage and motivate attendees to proactively decide on healthy lifestyle components,” says Lee. “They learn and discuss food shopping, budgeting, movement and stretching, and programs and resources that exist to stretch food dollars. The classes are important for people to help themselves since the security of our meals is a top priority.”

Classes will beheld at the Oak Park Community Center 3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Sacramento, CA. If interested in attending, call (916) 905-6034 to RSVP with a name, phone number, e-mail, and zip code. Participants must be 18 or older.
