DETAILS: Stacey Antine, MS RDN, founder of HealthBarnUSA, will present a Books & Cooks program, “Reading Labels and Serving Size Surprise.” She will offer guidance on how to select natural foods like whole vegetables and fruits versus packaged goods. She will also give advice on how to interpret nutrition labels on packaged food focused on natural ingredients vs. preservatives and additives. Antine will demonstrate how to make a “Harvest Wheat Berry Salad” as an example of a healthy, simple recipe most people could make at home.

Other healthy snacks courtesy of ShopRite of Lawnside and refreshments will be offered.

The library proposed and won a grant from the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development to address the need for food and culinary literacy in places like Camden that have been designated as ‘food deserts’ by the US Department of Agriculture. Books & Cooks is an ongoing project with over 30 programs planned through May, 2017 using its mobile kitchen at its eight branches and off-site locations.
