Health & Cooking Teams
Last Saturday, I was talking with a member who made an excellent suggestion — maybe we should ask to see if our local Thrivent branch would be willing to host a sort of cooking demonstration show with members in our branch offering to cook certain dishes they really enjoy. I thought this would be a fun event – maybe even I would get involved and make some vegan, plant-powered dish.
A couple of days later, this topic came up during a telephone conversation with another member who added to it — why not start a sort of cooking club/health group at church where we could get people together to talk about healthy eating and living. Adding to the concept was the thought that the group could use the church to prepare a healthy meal and bring it home to their families.
And what about a health group? We could ask local nutritionists and health promoters to come in and talk about healthy eating and lifestyles.
But most of all — we could open it up to the community.
I really got excited with this idea. Maybe we could start in March?
