On Friday, April 2, our program assistant Samantha Monks hosted a second virtual Jewish holiday/cooking workshop for members at the Sally and Howard Levin Clubhouse as part of a grant from the SteelTree Fund. Last week’s Passover Workshop featured a history of Passover, a lesson on sodium and heart health, a knife skills cheat sheet, and a cooking demonstration of low sodium matzo ball soup. Members who signed up for the workshop received a meal kit that included a cutting board, a produce knife set, and the ingredients needed to make matzo ball soup.
The Sally and Howard Levin Clubhouse director reached out to the Pennsylvania Clubhouse Coalition (PCC) to offer other clubhouses the opportunity to join. We were lucky to have the Tempo Clubhouse join us from Lancaster, PA and cook our matzo ball soup recipe live with us on Zoom from their clubhouse kitchen. This was the first workshop we were able to expand our reach to two clubhouses in the state of Pennsylvania!
Another major highlight from this workshop was in receiving feedback from the Sally and Howard Levin Clubhouse, we learned that one member who participated in the workshop advocated for more low sodium options to be added to the Clubhouse’s snack bar. We love to see the changes on the ground that nutrition education inspires!
Our third workshop at the Sally and Howard Levin Clubhouse will be coming up in May and will present the Jewish holiday of Shavuot!
