Dietitian In Your Kitchen’s Julie Palmer. 

June 15th was the first class in a series of four Healthy Cooking Classes at South Side Family Farms taught by Dietitian In Your Kitchen’s Julie Palmer and OSU Extension’s SNAP-Ed Program. Julie demonstrated how to sauté summer squash and zucchini picked fresh from the garden. SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator, Danielle Seidita, gave a lesson on the health benefits of squash, the importance of increasing our vegetable consumption, and using MyPlate as a guide for a healthy eating pattern.

The group explored the produce growing at South Side Family Farms and took a closer look at squash blossoms, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Four families left the class with a reusable tote full of ingredients to recreate the recipe at home, and everyone received a free 2021 Recipe Calendar from SNAP-Ed. Squash and zucchini harvested fresh from South Side Family Farms were available for folks to take home free and enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you at our next class on August 26, 2021, at 8 pm located in the garden at 1269 Wilson Ave. Columbus Ohio. (8/12/21 Class was canceled due to rain. An additional class date TBA for October 2021.) We will be cooking Celebrate Your Plate’s Sloppy Garden Joe’s and exploring the health benefits of peppers and tomatoes. Come taste a healthy, veggie-packed version of a family favorite recipe and join us for an evening of food, friends, and fun! For more information contact Danielle Seidita at (614) 292-8274 or
