Parent Resources – Nutrition Workshop, for Spanish Speakers

If you’ve been following the blog posts, as I know you surely are doing conscientiously, then you can comment the “magic words” for this post.

The public library is a phenomenal opportunity for all of us to educate ourselves gratis, and Spanish speakers are no exception.

The libraries must have decided to establish this as nutrition season, because in addition to the event at the Brooklyn Library, the Queens public library in Corona is also offering a series of nutrition workshops for Spanish speakers…. and they can even come out with a certificate!

* I know, the hours don’t work for many working parents, but share the information anyway.  Let them see the library as a resource for, Ahem, achieving their goals.

Please copy this information in English and Spanish into Word and share it with your families….  FCC Family Workers:  You have a number of Spanish speakers among your families… share this with the providers!
