In honor of Black History Month, we are highlighting one of the courses offered by our EAT360 program, A Taste of African Heritage! Through this course created by Oldways, adult community members learn to cook and celebrate the healthy and delicious food traditions of the African Diaspora with hands-on culinary classes.
A Taste of African Heritage (ATOAH) is more than just a series of cooking classes. It is a new kind of wellness program designed to reconnect participants with vibrant ways of eating and living that once promoted the health of African American ancestors everywhere. Not only does it introduce participants to the rich cultural history of African heritage foods, but also it provides them the tools they need to adopt this traditional way of eating for better health in modern day life.
Our EAT360 Program Coordinators offer this program at partner schools year-round during after school-hours. Childcare is provided. Like us on Facebook to stay up to date on the next ATOAH course offerings.
