Last month, DC Greens celebrated the end of a successful Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program season with our new program partners, Mary’s Center and Briya Public Charter School. As part of the celebration, Ibti Vincent, a Community Nutrition Educator, led a fun, hands-on cooking lesson where families helped prepare delicious sweet potato tacos, cilantro lime yogurt, and cabbage slaw. The recipes were a huge hit, and several participants were excited to prepare them for their families at home! You can check out Ibti’s write-up of the day on her blog.
