Snapshots from Regional Cooking for Health

By Megan Larmer, Regional Food Program Director

On November 12th, Glynwood held its first Regional Cooking for Health workshop. This day of experiential learning aimed to educate, engage, and inspire health care professionals to work within their sphere of influence to promote health outcomes for individuals by finding ways to increase the consumption of nutrient rich foods produced with regenerative practices. We wish you all could have been there! But since you couldn’t, enjoy these snapshots of our favorite moments.
