The Martin Luther King Health Center and Pharmacy offers healthy eating and nutrition classes to teach patients tips for establishing healthy eating practices. A one hour program is offered that covers which foods to increase and decrease, how to read food labels, tips for a great plate, and how to make healthy eating part of your total lifestyle. Call to sign up for the next class!
Cooking demos are done by Shreveport Green’s Mobile Market Staff or local chefs. MLK Health Center encourages the use of economical, healthy, fresh and seasonal recipes. After the demo, samples are shared with patients, staff and others in attendance. This is a great way to introduce participants to new foods and healthy cooking techniques!
