The James Prendergast Library is accepting reservations to participate in free classes about eating smart and eating better for less.
Classes will be offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County from 11 a.m. to noon Mondays from Feb. 24 through March 31 in the library story room.
According to Patricia Hammond, family and consumer science issue leader "Eat Smart New York classes are fun, interactive, and support behavior changes that will lead people to adopt better nutritional and lifestyle practices."
Nutrition educators JoAnn Perez, center, and Tanya Eggleston, right, share plans with Tamara McIntyre, Prendergast Library services manager, for classes Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County will offer at Prendergast Library beginning Feb. 24. Signups are being accepted now.
During the six-week series, participants will learn how to stretch their food dollars, plan and prepare easy meals, and make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
"This educational program will help people start eating better, feeling better and shopping better," said Tanya Eggleston, nutrition leader.
To register, call the library's information desk at 484-7135 or visit the library at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown.
Information is also available from Ms. Eggleston or JoAnn Perez at 664-9502, ext. 217. Accommodations for people with disabilities may also be requested at least one week before the series begins.
