Since April, CIS-NYC’s Social Services Program has been holding a weekly nutrition workshop on Zoom in collaboration with the Cornell University Cooperative Extension for our Spanish speaking clients. On Friday May 12th, we held our first in-person session, which was attended by 15 people. We did yoga exercises, cooked a healthy recipe in class, and learned about ounces and what percentage of food we should include on our plate to make it a complete plate of protein and fiber. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect in person and learn about healthy habits
The following day, we held a celebration for Mother’s Day for some of our clients, including participants of our support group for women. Twenty one families from the Social Services Department attended the event where they shared lunch and participated in family activities. Participants talked about their mothers and families and about how Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC has supported them.
