UMaine Co-op Hosts “Eat Well” Workshops 

The U-Maine Cooperative Extension says they want everyone to know how to eat well, on any budget. They held the first in a series of three “Eat Well” workshops Wednesday in Bangor.Instructors were teaching folks how to save money at the grocery store while still getting good nutrition. And for families using government food assistance programs, how to make those dollars stretch further.They wrote up sample menus and even tasted a few recipes. Other workshops in the series will cover how to feed picky eaters, and techniques for Crockpot cooking.”With the Crockpot cooking, it saves time, it’s good for busy families. A lot of people are in two-income families right now and it helps busy moms and busy dads get food on the table that’s not fast food,” says Brooke Fogg-Wolfe, with the Cooperative Extension.The workshops are free and held at the Department of Health and Human Services at 396 Griffin Road in Bangor.They say the second “Eat Well” class will be July 21st, at 9:30 a.m. You can call 942-7396 to register.
