NEOBHC Southern Soul: Healthy Eat-U-Trainment Session
Locations throughout Northeast Ohio
"A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food."
This Community Eat-U-Trainment session focuses on combining hands-on cooking classes, live discussion, and of course eating in communities that are low income, overly populated with convenience stores and have lower life expectancies due to health issues related to the obesity epidemic.
Join Chef-tivist Eric Wells for this two hour cooking session, parents and children will learn side-by-side how to cook healthier foods, how to cook together, how to prepare healthy foods and snacks inexpensively, how to make good food choices and so much more. Chef Wells is a strong advocate for healthy eating, especially for America’s youth.
To provide a healthy cooking session in low income communities.
To foster a development growth and togetherness between parents and children.
To provide an opportunity to educate communities on the benefits of cooking for life.
Chef Eric Wells (Author, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist) was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Chef Eric has always enjoyed cooking. As a youth, his mother taught him the magic of pairing different ingredients, spices and herbs to create marvelous dishes. Before she passed in 2003, Chef Eric promised his mother that he would take his passion for food and make it his career of choice.

2020 NEOBHC COMMUNITY CALENDAR
The Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition understands that food insecurity is a big concern in communities of color and although programs exist in the community through the school system they don’t make special provisions for children or parents and grandparents that are handicapped or under the age of 9. There are many children that will be greatly affected by the school closings for the next three weeks. As an organization that works to address disparities we decided to gather food and issue breakfast and lunch during the school closure. Many of the children that we serve receive their only meal at school. Without those provisions many children would go hungry.
We are raising money to provide nutritious food to children in need. The donations will be used to purchase food for children that are out of school and their siblings. We are currently in the following areas that Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition have been making deliveries to Kinsman, Downtown, Lee Miles, Union Broadway, Central, Mt Pleasant, Glenville, East Cleveland, Cleveland near South Euclid/Cleveland Hts, Collinwood.
We need your support to continue with this volunteer lead effort that has provided 70 meals a day to families that are most in need. Due to Governor Dewine’s quarantine order the Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition is streamlining our efforts for the next two weeks. The families will receive a week worth of provisions at the beginning of the week. The provision will include a menu for each day that provides the supplements children need for proper brain growth and development.
The following are the texts from Babies and Brunch participants after receiving their bags

Good afternoon, my name is Evelyn and my daughter Virginia signed up for your program. My heart have been heavy due to the fact my dad passed and trying to make arrangements. But today I am not experiencing a not so heavy heart because when I came home I saw the generosity of your organization. I know there is a God because He proved to me that there are people like yourself that truly care no matter who that person is you are helping. No, you don't know my story, but I can let you know that you brought tears to my eyes today. I am forever grateful for what you do to those in need. If I can be of any assistance in volunteering or prayers I'm here. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.
