Elders Edible Education @ Oak Park Community Center

Elders Edible Education @ Oak Park Community Center | Sacramento | CA | US

Our African Indigenous ancestors brought many wonderful food traditions to parts of the Caribbean, South America, and the southern states of the U.S. Over the generations, many of these food traditions have been lost with the influences of modern American eating habits. Whether we look to Ghana, Kenya, Mexico or India we find an overall healthy eating pattern shared by all of their culinary histories, with distinct foods featured by each region.


We are back at the Oak Park Community Center where we will be learning, preparing and eating meals based on the healthy food traditions of our ancestors. All our dishes are powerfully nutritious, delicious and affordable! Come chef it up every Tuesday and Thursday with us!


All classes are free!
