Are your kids picky eaters? Having trouble getting them to eat meals that are good for them? Join us for a spotlight Books and Cooks program at the Ferry Ave. Branch on Saturday, November 5 at 11 a.m. Author Stacey Antine of HealthBarn USA will do a cooking demonstration with the library's new mobile kitchen, and will share tips on creating healthy food that the whole family will love. Antine will offer guidance on how to select natural foods like whole vegetables and fruits versus packaged goods, and then how to interpret nutrition labels on packaged food focused on natural ingredients vs. preservatives and additives.
Bring the kids along! We'll provide activities for them while the adults are watching the cooking demonstration and talk. Refreshments will be served.
In conjunction with its Books and Cooks program, designed to foster food literacy, the Camden County Library System is conducting a system-wide food drive. Each of the library's eight branches will have clearly marked bins for the collection of non-perishable food items like cans and dry packaged food in boxes and bags.
Each branch has designated an organization in its service area that will receive and distribute the food donations.
