Cooking To Combat COVID-19 teaches participants how to use a plant-based diet to fight hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity—which are among the conditions that can make COVID-19 more severe and deadly.

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.

In this online class series, you will learn about 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.

This class also includes:

  • Research-based nutrition and health information
  • A whole-food, plant-based cooking demo
  • Digital educational resources and recipes
  • A supportive community
