EmPOWERED To Cook

The American Heart Association has a national focus on “building a culture of health in faith communities by making the healthy choice the easy choice.” Through our EmPOWERED To Cook series we are working with congregations to improve their health and diets, as well as educate and inspire healthy behavior not only for them but for the community at large which they serve.

cook-teaserOne of the most critical components to improving cardiovascular health is an improved diet. Knowing that our faith communities are often a source of meals not only for the congregation and its members, but also food served as part of their feeding programs for in-need populations, sick and shut in church members, church meetings and events. We worked with faith leaders to bring this 4 part cooking series to you!
