DETROIT (WWJ) - Whole Foods Market in Detroit is opening “Let’s Talk Food” — a nutrition and culinary education center, on Woodward Avenue, across the parking lot from from its Midtown store.

The center will feature a teaching kitchen as well as classroom space where people can get cooking and nutrition tips, recipes and support.

Dr. Akua Woolbright, Whole Foods’ Community Health and Wellness Educator, says the classes will help prep attendees for a healthy eating challenge that kicks off next month.

In the first class, this Thursday, participants will learn how to identify the types of foods that will help them feel better, look younger, gain more energy, and possibly live longer. We will carefully distinguish between real food and fake food stuff, and how our bodies respond to each.

The best part is, it’s all free, but you do have to register to attend.

To RSVP for the class, send an email to Akua.Woolbright@WholeFoods.com.
