Comunidades Unidas held a cooking demonstration of healthy food for children as part of Comprando Rico y Sano (Cooking Healthy and Delicious), a program partnership with UnidosUS. Through fun activities, we encouraged children to eat foods that bring health benefits such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
While children were learning healthy recipes, their parents received information about health and social resources available in their neighborhood. Parents shared their experiences as Glendale residents and talked about the needs of their community. They also learned about Comunidades Unidas’ services and opportunities to organize for change!
The day ended successfully, children enjoyed a healthy meal and families were connected with the health and other services they needed. We are very proud to continue connecting with our neighbors and empowering communities to take action.
