UNI Adult Senior Nutrition Education Program

  • Spectrum Community Health Center 5201 Haverford Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19139 United States (map)

FREE weekly classes including nutrition lessons, physical activity and hands-on cooking workshops! We also provide a variety of free resources to participants including booklets, handouts, coupons and food tastings.  Participants will also be provided with a copy of each recipe so they may begin the process of building their own library of Affordable, Healthy, Easy, Accessible, and Delicious recipes (mirroring AUNI’s Think AHEAD Model) that can be built into a keepsake book to be used time and again.  Healthy eating never tasted so good!
