LCHFH and Purdue Extension Service Team up for Education  

Cooking.  Walking.  Wellness.  Purdue Extension Service and LaGrange County Habitat for Humanity worked together this spring to provide a 5-session educational opportunity for local partner families of LCHFH.

Using the “Walk Indoors!” program developed by Leslie Sansone, families met for four indoor walking classes.

The program ended with a “healthy cooking class” led by Ann Fremion and Debby Pontecorvo of the local extension service.  Cooking quinoa and chopping vegetables occupied the adults while the children created smoothies-in-a-bag and cheese and fruit snacks and worked on activity sheets.

Then, the party began:  roasted turkey breast, quinoa salad, broccoli and craisin salad, smoothies, and cheese and fruit for dessert. 

 

Your vehicle can be a moving reminder of the mission of LCHFH.
