Ellen Levine, a registered dietitian nutritionist for the Office of the Aging, will be talking about nutrients your body needs as you age and how best to incorporate them into your diet. She’ll have a sample “recipe” – that gives a good example of getting some of the most crucial nutrients into your everyday food habits. It will come with handouts and recipes, and “taste test”.

At this point, the Claverack Library requires everyone coming in to wear a mask.
