  • This event has passed.

The Suppers Program, NOFA-NJ, and Gravity Hill Farm present a series of workshops on food and nutrition, including a hands-on cooking demo, to help our communities develop a better understanding of their bodies’ relationship with food, and expand the ways in which we can prepare the foods we get from our gardens and organic farms.
Difficulty focusing is a problem that hinders the lives of children and adults.  This issue is thought to have behavioral causes, emotional causes, and brain chemistry causes among others.  Our workshop will discuss lifestyle and diet changes that can help.  The focus is on healthy eating with a diet rich in nutrient dense produce and low in environmental toxins.  We will discuss how and why it is important to eat an anti-inflammatory diet to maintain brain health.  We will make and sample healthy brain nourishing snacks.  Please notify us at education@nofanj.org if you have any specific dietary restrictions. Pre-registration is REQUIRED as we will be purchasing food ingredients for the class.
