Seniors in Rockford have a new nutrition education program available to them beginning in early December.
"Fresh Conversations" starts December 6th at the Rockford Community Center, beginning at 11:30 a.m. until noon and will continue on the first Wednesday of each month.
The “Fresh Conversations” program offers food, fun and friendly conversation to help you maintain your health and independence. Once a month, older adults gather together at a congregate meal site to learn from each other, sample new recipes, discuss current nutrition and health topics, and discover new ways to be active. “Fresh Conversations” is a 30 minute session led by a facilitator using an information packed newsletter developed and funded by the Iowa Department of Public Health and the Iowa Department on Aging.
Attendance at “Fresh Conversations” can range anywhere from 5 to 40 participants. The Rockford site is the 26th "Fresh Conversations" location in the 29 county Elderbridge service area.
