Information about the fundraising cooking class:

As the school year begins, Registered Dietitian and Chef, Lynn Dugan, wants to help make brown bag lunches easier and more deliciously nutritious. She is conducting a 1-hour zoom session introducing fresh ideas for packable lunches to best fuel your kids. This session will be full of new strategies for back-to-school lunch time.

On the menu: Power Pita with Hummus & Veggies, Sweet Apple and Turkey Wrap and Toasted Bean & Cheese Quesadilla.

You’re invited to cook along as Lynn demos these recipes. The recipes and shopping list for class will be sent the week prior to class. If you can’t make the ‘live’ session, you will also receive a link to the recorded zoom session. The class is a fundraiser for Feed My Starving Children. It will raise money to feed hungry kids around the world. The suggested $50 donation directly to FMSC provides 200 life-saving meals.
