Healthy Tips for Lunchboxes: Sept. 20 Workshop Designed to Help Move Fresh Foods from the Garden to the Lunch Plate


It can’t be time to think about school lunches yet! Oh, but it is. Fortunately, the Green Spaces Alliance is hosting a fun workshop that’s intended to help everyone prepare healthier school lunches. “From Garden to Pantry to Lunchbox” is a workshop happening Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Diabetes Education Garden, 701 S Zarzamora.

The focus will be helping parents steer away from pre-packaged lunches and snacks that are high in sodium, saturated fat, sugar and preservatives. Instead, learn practices for harvesting, storing and drying garden produce, along with ideas for making garden goodies tasty for any palate. You’ll get fresh tips and ideas for lunches and snacks on the go.
