Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE) for the free Food for Health and Soul classes offered throughout the community. The goal of the six-week classes is to help decrease the risk of chronic disease. This hands-on, interactive class equips you with the necessary skills to modify family recipes for better health by decreasing sugar, fat, salt and sodium and by increasing fiber-rich foods during preparation.
