Join AARP in Houston and the Houston Food Bank for Cooking for a Cause monthly classes. Houston Food Bank Nutrition Educator Sandra Mangini will be your guide on this Latin American cuisine and cultural journey. She will present recipes from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Colombia. For our final class, Sandra will be live to walk you through a diabetes-friendly recipe from Mexico. She’ll also talk about intuitive eating and how you can cook to promote a healthy lifestyle. A list of ingredients will be emailed to preregistered AARP members in advance of the class so they can shop and cook along.

The event is free, but we encourage participants to donate to their local food bank. This series will be live via Facebook.
