OKT & The Literacy Center teamed up for healthy eating

Throughout April, Our Kitchen Table had the fabulous opportunity to share its Cook, Eat & Talk activities with Latino families involved in The Literacy Center of West Michigan’s family night events. This short video shares one Literacy Center teacher’s reaction to this joint effort.

Held at various area public schools, the events provide opportunity for adults who are learning English to bring their families for an informal dinner and activities that help them build their language skills. OKT shared how to sprout seeds in jars, how to prepare a delicious kale salad and how to become involved in its residential food gardening program.In addition, OKT shared some basics about food justice and the need for improved access to healthy food in Grand Rapids’ income challenged neighborhoods.
