KITCHEN AID – The Rural Outreach Center in East Aurora, which provides a variety of services for people in rural areas in the Southtowns and the Southern Tier, is starting a special nutrition program for parents and children.
“Through the program, we will offer cooking and nutrition classes once a month for a year,” says ROC program director Susan Giovino, “and the Roycroft Campus in East Aurora has graciously offered to host those classes.”
Created by dietary interns from the University at Buffalo, the program will give parents cooking lessons while their children learn about food and nutrition via books, games and activities. After the parents cook a meal, the children will join them for dinner.
The program, partially funded by the Junior League of Buffalo, also will purchase kitchen equipment for participants. Also contributing are the WNY Foundation, East Aurora Cooperative Market and local farmers. For more information, call 240-2220 or visit theroc.co.
