We’ve Got Some Questions!

i Feb 13th No Comments by



Hello PCIL Friends! We are in the process of planning “Dish’n On Nutrition Part 2”.

The workshops that PCIL offered last year to our consumers were a huge success! This year we will be offering additional food workshops including more “hands on” meal planning and cooking.

We hope to start these new 12 week workshops this spring starting in April.

If you would be interested in attending the upcoming workshops, we would like to know the best available days and times for you. Please let us know by email or telephone. We can’t wait to get started!

Thank you for your quick response!
