Finding Connection Through Food

Cooking Meals Together:  Nutrition education, cooking, and eating together offer a myriad of benefits for older adults including increased social connection, enhanced nutrition and health, improved appetite, and enriched quality of life. What are we doing around New England to bring older folks together for shared experiences around food? Join the Tri-State Collaborative on Aging in this webinar to hear from organizations who are cooking together to promote better social and health outcomes for older adults in their communities.  Closed captioning will be available.  If you can’t join us live, this event will be recorded for later access.  Register here.
