Creating a healthy kitchen, food pantry

Today is the deadline to register for a free virtual lesson that will teach participants how to make better choices when stocking their pantry, refrigerator and freezer. 

“Having a pantry, refrigerator, and freezer full of healthy food at home helps encourage healthy eating habits, said Shakera Williams, MPH, Assistant Nutrition Extension Agent for the Webster Parish LSU AgCenter Extension Office. “It is encouraged to eat at home instead of eating out.”

The virtual lesson will be held from noon until 1 p.m. Thursday, January 27 through the Microsoft Teams platform which is very similar to Zoom. Once you have registered for the program you will be emailed a link and instructions on how to join the program. Deadline to register for this program is Tuesday, January 25. Registration link:
