2024 H.A.W.S Presents: Healthier Soul Food

Healthy Aging Workshop Series

Engaged Aging’s Yolanda Jackson (right) kicked off this years’ presentations at First Baptist Church Frankfort speaking about Healthier Soul Food options! Carla Carter (left) of UK Family and Consumer Sciences Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office, shared with us the nutritional benefits and differences in various cooking oils like avocado and olive (because don’t we all really wonder that?). And of course, the always talented Maranda Brooks (center) of Fayette County Cooperative Extension brought the music, movement & dance for all, with her ever-popular drumming stix! All of this helped to encourage lifestyle change through eating practices and helped wrap up the church-based community fast from meat, soda, sugar and alcohol this day.

We are always so happy to be invited back to First Baptist Church Frankfort and are so proud of how you have rung in the New Year with commitment to your community’s health through action for yet another year!
