Met Council Food Warehouse hosted its second installment of “Just Say Yes to Fruits and Vegetables”. The program, run in collaboration with the Food Bank of New York City aims to educate New Yorkers on how to cook and eat nutritious meals.
Using nutrition education workshops and food demonstrations, Just Say Yes works to ensure low-income families in New York eat nutritious foods, make the most of their food budgets, prepare foods in a safe manner, increase physical activity and drink healthier beverages. Each workshop provides practical nutrition information using USDA approved lesson plans, cooking demonstrations and recipes using fruits and vegetables.
This month, the nutritionist cooked with corn succotash.
