"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
HAYWARD– Hayward Library will host events at senior living facilities regularly visited by the bookmobile on Friday, October 27th & Thursday, November 30th. Chinese and Korean immigrant residents of the complex will enjoy talks and demonstrations of healthy Asian cooking techniques by nutritionists, dieticians and the local foodbank. Health and wellness conversations will be followed by recipe collecting from the seniors which will be contributed to a community-sourced cookbook and health guide. Books, food, and a variety of practical informational materials will be distributed, and library and social service staff will be on hand to assist the seniors and help them make connections to resources and support.
For more information, contact Project Director Reina Escovedo at Reina.Escovedo@Hayward-ca.gov.
