Library to host smart eating, shopping classes

JAMESTOWN Prendergast Library is accepting reservations to participate in free classes about eating smart and eating better for less.

Classes will be offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County from 11 a.m. to noon on Mondays from Feb. 24 through March 31 in the library story room.

According to Family & Consumer Science Issue Leader Patricia Hammond, “Eat Smart New York classes are fun, interactive, and support behavior changes that will lead people to adopt better nutritional and lifestyle practices.”

During the six-week series, participants will learn how to stretch their food dollars, plan and prepare easy meals, and make healthy choices for themselves and their families.

“This educational program will help people start eating better, feeling better and shopping better,” according to Nutrition Educator Tanya Eggleston.

To register, call the library’s information desk at 484-7135 or stop in at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown.

Information is also available from Eggleston or JoAnn Perez at 664-9502, Ext. 217. Accommodations for people with disabilities may also be requested at least one week before the series begins.
