This workshop is to shine a light on the (V)ITAL role nutrition plays in the food choices we make everyday. We believe nutrition education is a human right, and we are here to help. Join us as we explain how to break down food labels, examine neighborhood demographics and their relationship to available options, and how to be prepared in a society that benefits from our sickness.
