A History of How and What We Eat

Join WCHS staff and a local dietitian to discuss the history of the type and food we eat compared to 100 years ago, along with how food preparation has changed during that time. Topics include portion sizes, how recipes have changed with increased technology and food production changes, and the use of food stabilizers to preserve the shelf life of our food.

This session is free and open to the public. attendance is limited to the first 40 participants--RSVP is required to 763-682-7323.

This is one in a series of eight history-based, healthy lifestyle themed presentations, thanks to partnership with Local Roots Food Coop and a Neighborhood Health Connection (TM) Healthy Activity Grand from Allina Health.
