Your donation on Facebook is a direct investment into creating healthier communities.
Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to many life threatening medical issues like hypertension, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The Oldways A Taste of African Heritage classes build on people’s love of food, heritage, and tradition to make it easier to start using delicious foods with high nutritional value as replacements for unhealthy foods. Through hands-on education we will ﬁnd what is in our true heritage—a healthy heart, a strong body, extraordinary energy, vibrant and delicious foods, and a long, healthy life.
