MDI Hospital is happy to announce our first ever Food Revolution Day event, a Cooking Class & Open House at the Straus Center in Southwest Harbor. The event kicks off their new childhood obesity prevention program designed to keep all of our island’s children happy, engaged and healthy.

Local chef Sam Keene will be donating his time to teach children and adults of all skill levels how to prepare a simple, delicious meal. Chef Keene is most passionate about helping to connect food and community.

The Food Revolution Day Cooking Class & Open House will be held at the Straus Center adjacent to the Community Health Center. The event begins at 3 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. There will be healthy snacks to try, recipes to bring home and activities for all ages!

All are welcome and donations are most appreciated. For more information, contact Oka Hutchins at 288-5082, ext. 1423.
