"Cooking for a Life Time" has come to McDuffie County. "Cooking for a Life Time" is a new cooking school designed for women to reduce the risk for cancer and other chronic diseases. The school has two sessions that will include information about foods and food preparation methods that may reduce cancer risk, tips for shopping for healthy foods and strategies for selecting nutritious foods when eating away from home.
The school will be held Tuesday, Aug. 14 and 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. Each session will have a demonstration of healthy recipes for the audience to taste. Participants will receive door prizes, recipes and information that will help them translate what they learn at the school to new healthy habits at home.
If you are a female adult and you have not had a recent mammogram or pap test, you may qualify for the cooking school. There is no charge, but you must register by Friday, Aug. 10. To register call the Extension Office at 706-595-1815.
"Cooking for a Life Time" is a collaborative effort of the American Cancer Society, McDuffie County Health Department and McDuffie County Cooperative Extension.
