The San Benito Medical Society was founded in the 1950s to bring quality medical care to the residents of San Benito County, and the work continues today. Concerned with the rising levels of childhood obesity and diabetes, they have partnered with San Benito Bounty to create a program suggested by chef Jamie Oliver, 2010 TED award winner. Part of Oliver’s Food Revolution, his acceptance speech shared his wish to ensure every person in knows how to cook 10 healthy meals. Children in our schools will have this skill by the time they graduate from high school. What a great concept: San Benito Bounty and the San Benito Medical Society can both get on top of this one! This is a life-saving skill which seems to have gone by the wayside in an ocean of golden arches and frozen corn dogs. Plans are underway for a series of cooking classes, free to the attendees, to be held in the community. Each class will focus on a delicious, healthful meal comprised (whenever and wherever possible) of local produce and meat. Emphasis will be on affordablity and ease of cooking. San Benito Bounty is currently compiling recipes. If you have ideas, contact email@example.com. See you soon for fun, healthy food classes!
