Nutrition for Life

Free nutrition class with cooking demonstration for women affected by cancer

Eating well is not meant to be intimidating or challenging. In this FREE nutrition class, you will learn lifestyle changes you can make to improve your health and wellness. Each class will feature a new recipe and cooking techniques that you can bring home and share with your family. Expert guidance will help to grow healthy eating behaviors and the skills you need to feel comfortable in the kitchen.  

Bring your questions, an open mind, an apron (if you would like), and a willingness to learn!

To register, or for more information, please contact Amanda Bryant at 503-418-9731 or
