Want to cook a nutritious, soulful meal while learning about the history and cultural importance of common ingredients across the African diaspora?
The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW)-Greater Boston Section and Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy have partnered to develop FRESH& – a monthly webinar series that will explore a range of nutrition topics. FRESH& is designed to engage Black women in discussing their diet and nutrition in a culturally competent, celebratory way. Each month attendees will explore topics like how to make healthy, culturally relevant meals, boost their immune systems through diet, and coping with stress through food.
This month, we are excited to present FRESH & Soulful Cooking: A One-Pot Recipe with Janna Adkins, MS on Wednesday January 26th, 7:00PM-8:00PM EST.
Janna earned her MS in Nutrition Interventions, Communication, and Behavior Change in May 2021 and is a current doctoral student at the Friedman School. She will lead a live cooking class that reviews the history and cultural importance of common ingredients across the African diaspora. Additionally, she will share information about the nutritional content of these ingredients and how to get the most out of the food we cherish.
Attendees will be able to purchase ingredients beforehand and follow along as Janna prepares a one-pot vegetable stew.
