TORRINGTON – The University of Wyoming Extension Service will offer classes on healthy eating through March.
The Cent$ible Nutrition Program is an old stand-by in Goshen County, said program assistant Deborah Battleson with the county Extension Service here. The focus of the classes is helping individuals and families create nutritional meals on a budget.
“In these days of fast food and fast living, we’re surrounded by cheap and easy food with no nutritional substance,” Ms. Battleson said. “It’s important to slow down, to think about what we’re consuming, to think about ways to treat our bodies right and make that affordable.”
Class sessions begin at the Goshen County Extension Office in Torrington at 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 13. A second round of classes also start Monday, at 5:30 p.m. at First Wyoming United Presbyterian Church, 2972 Main St., in Torrington.
The two, six-class sessions are separate and will continue on Tuesdays from Feb. 21 through March 21.
The Cent$ible Nutrition Program was developed as part of the US Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. The program is targeted for individuals and families with incomes at 185 percent of federal poverty guidelines or less.
For more information, contact Ms. Battleson at the Extension Office at (307)532-2436 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
