Spark - Healthy Living Series
Thu, June 8, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
In partnership with Toronto Public Health's Investment in Youth Engagement grant around a harm reduction approach to tobbacco use, Spark is going to be hosting a 4 part nutrition series. The series will focus on food skills, including a grocery store tour, how to read and select food based on food labels, cooking meals together, and other health topics including topics around tobacco use, and niccotine replacement therapy. Each evening will include a group game or activity outside in Barbara Hall Park.
In preparation for this series, we will also be hosting a training session with Toronto Public Health staff who will prepare any participants in leading subsequent sessions in the series. If anyone is interested in attending the youth leader training session, please register for March 30th's session.
All of these session will have space for folks to drop in, but as we are planning for meal preparation, we would like to get an estimate number of people who will be attending in advance of the workshops.
