A Taste of African Heritage

Einstein F.U.N. (Families Understanding Nutrition) and Awbury Arboretum, in collaboration with the Philly Goat Project, present A Taste of African Heritage and Health (ATOAH), a 6-week nutrition education and cooking program that offers hands-on lessons on healthy cooking and eating in an interactive community setting.

Thursdays, May 23rd through June 27th, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Location: the Education Center at the Awbury Arboretum Agricultural Village.  (6336 Ardleigh St, Philadelphia, PA 19138). Please park on Ardleigh St; click here for a map.

 ATOAH, an Oldways cooking program, takes an in-depth look at the food groups of the African Heritage Diet Pyramid, a guide to enjoying nutritious meals and a healthy lifestyle rooted in the rich and healthful traditions of African Heritage foods. Through collaborative cooking and discussion on the history, culture and nutritional benefits behind each African Heritage Diet food group, participants will explore and practice tools for a healthy, vibrant, and energy-rich lifestyle.  
 
Adult participants are invited to engage in hands-on cooking of six delicious recipes, while children can enjoy nutrition-related activities. All participants are welcome to gather to enjoy each session’s meal and to take a group walk with the Philly Goat Project goats to see what’s growing in the Agricultural Village
 
Children ages 5 to 12 are invited to participate when their caregiver is enrolled in the class.
This program is free, but registration is required and participants are expected to attend all six classes. Program space is limited and is first come first serve. 

Registration for this class is full.
