Nutrition Workshop for Seniors by RSVP (July 2018)

The Friends Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) held a Nutrition Workshop at RayFre Senior Center in Raymond along with Becky Betts from the UNH Cooperative Extension. There was an assortment of produce including seasonal and specialty items such as tricolor carrots & peppers, papayas, mangoes, kiwi, pomegranate, a variety of hummus flavors (including hummus paired with strawberries) and different types of wraps. Attendees sampled the food and then made wraps based on their preferences. There were smoothies with spinach, berries, and yogurt to try. Special thanks to RSVP Bone Builder leaders, Terri Schoppmeyer and Carol Reed, for lending a helping hand chopping, serving, and supporting.

The feedback received was extremely positive from the 24 people who attended. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of attendees as we anticipated a much smaller group. Everyone commented how enjoyable it was and would like to see more offerings of this nature. As such, Becky and Friends RSVP Coordinator Addie Tarbell will be working on a series of 4-6 sessions for the fall. Thank you, Becky!
