Two Midwest Food for Life Instructors are teaming up to offer this unique online nutrition and cooking class! Denise and Lauren’s upcoming Cooking to Combat COVID-19 series is designed to help participants use a plant-based diet to fight hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity—conditions which are often associated with the worst COVID-19 outcomes. Many people, however, are unaware that plant-based diets are scientifically proven to prevent and even reverse many of those diseases. Now you can get this lifesaving information, plus cooking tips and delicious recipes, right in the comfort of your home by signing up for our online Food for Life nutrition and cooking class!

Participants will learn about topics including immune-boosting foods, diabetes prevention and reversal, heart health, and maintaining a healthy weight, as well as tips on planning a budget-friendly weekly or monthly menu with pantry staples. Each class will also include a cooking demonstration to give you simple ideas for getting started!

People with underlying health conditions make up 94% of COVID-19 deaths in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans, who are affected disproportionately by these conditions, are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.
