Evening Program – March
Cooking Demonstration
Healthy Eating on the Go: Maximize Energy

Speaker:  Lilian Anderson

March 15, 2018 (Thursday)
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Westminster Presbyterian Church

1500 Scio Church Road, Ann Arbor

Local chef and dietitian Lillian Anderson demonstrates quick recipes that tantalize the taste buds while delivering maximum nutrition to feed your body throughout your hectic day. The session will feature quick and easy appetizers for that last minute Bridge Party, Ladies Night-In, or a day full of errands. It’s a hands-on experience, with a tasting to end the evening.

An Ann Arbor resident since 1993, Lilian Anderson has spent her whole life cooking. “I’ve worked at Zingerman’s Deli and the original Whole Foods in their kitchen, back when they were in the space Trader Joe’s is in now.” She has also worked as a personal chef for several Ann Arbor families and currently teaches University of Michigan students about to move off campus how to cook for themselves — perhaps more survival technique than creating culinary masterpieces!

Last year, with a lifetime of cooking experience under her belt— including a master’s degree in nutrition from Wayne State — Anderson launched her own business teaching young people, Sprouting Chefs.  At the same time, she continues teaching healthy, quick cooking to adults.

National Equal Pay Day

April 10, 2018

Wear red if you want to dis-celebrate!

On this day, the average working man can (theoretically) start working and, by the end of 2018, still make as much money as the average working woman makes for the entire calendar year.

The disparity has barely changed in the last decade.

The situation is far worse for women of color.  For African American women, for example, Equal Pay Day is in August.
