                                 Eight 4-week Food for Life Series Cooking to Combat COVID-19 With Food

                                           Provide a 4-week online class series in vegan cooking at no charge




I.  90-minute classes will be part of PCRM’s Cooking to Combat COVID-19, which seeks to empower people to address underlying conditions – obesity, diabetes, and hypertension – that make them most vulnerable to the ravages of COVID-19.


A plant-based diet has been scientifically proven to prevent and even reverse diabetes and hypertension and support significant, long-term weight loss. Measurable health improvements can be realized in a relatively short period of time once unhealthy foods such as meat, dairy, and saturated fats are removed from the diet.


II.  Black and Latinx individuals have been especially hard hit by COVID-19 due to several factors, including health care disparities, the prevalence of underlying conditions, and a disproportionately high rate of infection by the virus.


III. Each 4-week course will be limited to 30 participants to ensure a high-quality learning experience.  The goal is to reach a primarily non-vegan audience.


IV. Showcase flavorful, easy recipes in live demonstrations, empower individuals in a supportive and motivating atmosphere and resources.
