Wellness & Nutrition

The Wellness & Nutrition Program involves nutritional education and events, in which participants engage with nutritional food and information.  This includes learning how to properly read labels and better understand food science so participants are equipped with the necessary tools to make healthier food choices and prepare nutritional meals, including vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Through the practice of canning, the best methods of food preservation are also explored.


 

Our Pedal Bike Powered Smoothie Bar is a pop-up smoothie bar in which participants pedal a bike that generates electricity. This energy is stored into battery packs, which allows us to plug into blenders and create smoothies. By doing this, participants receive wellness from pedaling the bike, engage in the use of clean renewable energy and nutritional education by blending and drinking healthy smoothies. We have presented our Pedal Bike Powered Smoothie Bar at various community events and festivals, schools, and our community gardens.
