Giving Pantry & Cooking Workshops: Widowhood can severely affect a family’s finances and access to healthy food. In association with local food banks, Widow Strong will hold a pop-up grocery once per month to feed up to 400 food-insecure families. Cooking workshop is included on the same day as food distribution to instruct how to use the fresh veggies, fruits, and other food items to create nutritionally dense dishes. Chef Inger Smith, a celebrity and elite athlete chef, will be joining us to conduct the cooking workshops! Initiative test period: 3 months staring February, 2020.
