Nutrition plays an important role in helping us maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Nutritional need may vary for people who are managing an illness, concerned about weight management, or for people who are preparing meals direct from their garden. The proceeds from Providence Bridge Pedal this year will be used to develop specific community-based cooking classes and demonstrations. We are also planning a food preservation class for people interested in canning and drying their harvest for year-round enjoyment. These free classes will begin in the fall and will be available for registration on the Providence Health and Wellness Classes website.
