Super Foods, Super Families, super you!

The Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation presents “Super Foods, Super Families, Super You”, a cooking workshop and tasting for the entire family. Kristin Gluck will conduct this educational and fun demonstration incorporating a variety of super foods. The class will be held Tuesday, June 2nd at 6:00 p.m. Registration for adults is $25/SCHF members and $30/Non-members. Bring your child (ages 6-18) to participate for only $10.

Having trouble getting your family to the table? Short on ideas for fast nutritious meals that everyone will actually eat? This workshop will provide recipes that are not only quick and nutritious but they incorporate many of the 14 super foods. These ideas are so easy, we invite the kids along to prepare, taste and explore the super foods.

Super foods help you lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, and, for an added bonus, put you in a better mood, proven to increase health, delay aging, and increase energy levels. A healthy diet incorporating a variety of the super foods will help you maintain your weight, fight disease, and live longer.

Kristin Gluck enjoys creating foods with interesting flavor combinations using fresh and healthy ingredients.

Multicultural Arts Camp for Kids

The Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation welcomes back the Vicksburg Multicultural Arts Camp. The 2009 Multicultural Arts Camp will be held June 22 - 26 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. The camp is open to grades 1st-6th. The registration fee is $50 per child and includes all supplies, materials, and a daily snack.

During this unique camp, children discover the art, dance, music and cuisine of a different culture. By studying cultural differences and similarities through the arts, students will learn new artistic techniques while developing an appreciation for the traditions and customs of others.

Experienced educators plan and oversee all aspects of the camp. This year we are pleased to welcome Kathy Gibson, art instructor, and Tracy Gardner, choral director, at Vicksburg High School.

The camp will culminate with a public performance and exhibit on the last day in the SCHF Auditorium. All family and friends are invited to attend.

These events and programs are made possible by our valued SCHF individual members and the Corporate Sponsors
