NFMMC stated, “The initiative aims to empower individuals and families in the Niagara Falls community to make healthier choices by incorporating flavorful, nutritious spices into their diets.”

Starting May 23, the series will be held at the Golisano Conference Room, located at 533 10th St., from 11 a.m. to noon each Thursday through June 13.

A press release noted, “Through engaging and interactive sessions, participants will learn about the benefits of incorporating spices into their meals, how to use the spices to enhance flavor without adding extra calories or sodium, and learn practical tips for shopping and preparing meals with spices. Each session will be led by knowledgeable professionals from the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County SNAP-ED program.
