Thanks to Kiser Senior Center, located in Bessemer City, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Gaston County Center kicked off “Med Instead of Meds” as an in-person workshop with food demo activities beginning in June. Very excited to offer the program – it’s the first hands-on food activity we’ve offered since 2019 due to COVID! This 6-session workshop explores simple steps of the Mediterranean Diet to help you eat the Med Way.
Our volunteers and summer staff make this workshop possible – thanks to Dana Croston, Extension Master Food Volunteer; Laurel Davis, NC State summer intern, and Anne Jenkins. From food prep, demos, and instruction their expertise makes it interactive, informative, and delicious!
“Having an in-person presentation with hands-on activities is how I prefer to learn and the Mediterranean Diet is what my doctor has recommended for me. So glad to have this learning opportunity,” commented one of the participants.
