Bronx Health REACH Debuts Vegetable and Fruit Prescription Food Demonstrations

Bronx Health REACH debuted its first cooking demonstrations of the Vegetable and Fruit Prescription program on Tuesday, August 2nd at the Institute for Family Health Center’s Mt. Hope Family Health Center. Tania Lopez, the chef and founder of Coqui the Chef is collaborating with Bronx Health REACH to lead cooking demonstrations of healthy delicious dishes that patients can easily make at home. Tania provides a wealth of knowledge about healthy cooking and has shared her recipes on The Chew, BronxNet’s Open, and What Not to Wear!

For the Mt. Hope cooking demonstration she made a “Fiesta Salad” which is chock full of vegetables such as cucumbers, avocadoes, tomatoes, and bell peppers as well as fruits. Tania demonstrated step-by-step in Spanish and English how easy it was to make the salad. Over thirty patients and Mt. Hope staff tasted the Fiesta Salad and received the recipe and nutrition facts about the vegetables and fruits in the salad. The food demonstration was well received and created a buzz about the Vegetable and Fruit Prescription Program and its benefits! The next food demonstration will be held at the Institute for Family Health’s Stevenson Family Health Center on August 11th.
