Free Nutrition Workshop - Pacific Science Center

Seattle Presbytery

The Pacific Science Center is offering free nutrition workshops!

The Youth and Family Programs Department at the Pacific Science Center is offering free 1 or 2 hour nutrition workshops to King County organizations and venues between now and the end of June 2012. The workshop development and delivery is paid for by a grant from the Seattle and King County Public Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The primary focus is to increase the overall health and wellbeing of King Country residents through education and empowerment. The potential programs and locations that would work for workshop delivery are endless (church groups, family nights, staff training, classroom presentations, etc.). The only requirement is that the location needs to be in King County.

The workshop includes activities surrounding food choices, sugar content, exposure to new fruits and vegetables (we bring some for them to try as a component of the activity) and the cost and health benefits of eating/cooking at home vs. fast food.

I would work out the date(s), venues etc. with you and we would provide the staff and materials. We would ask for marketing help on the part of your organization in order to ensure a good turn out and achieve grant requirements but that is it! The workshop works best with a group size of 20-30 and is designed for families with children 5+. There is flexibility in group size and audience which we can talk about if you are interested. The teachers would be happy to adapt their style and the material as much as possible to fit your needs.

We also have a Wellness cart that focuses on neighborhood wellness that can be delivered to a more festival type setting where it can be stationary for a few hours with guests coming as they please. The activities on the cart can be adapted to guest who spend 2 minutes at the cart or 2 hours. An ideal venue would be a carnival, fair of sorts, 5K, etc.

The Cart includes activities that focus on smoking, traffic safety, access to healthy food options and physical exercise.
