FREEPORT, Ill., March 23, 2016 — FHN Hospice is proud to present a series of free workshops to help people dealing with grief.
The first workshop in the series, Memory’s Kitchen – Nurturing Yourself through Grief, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 2 in the kitchen of United Presbyterian Church, 302 W. Stephenson Street in Freeport.
Nurturing yourself is an important part of the grief process. Memory’s Kitchen will support and inspire those going through this difficult time by the simple act of creating a meal for oneself. Enjoy discussions of favorite dishes and the memories associated with them, with the future intent of compiling a family cookbook.
Chef Stephanie Samuels, who owned and ran Angel Food Bakery in Chicago, will facilitate the workshop. Since closing the bakery, she has been focusing on what inspires her most, using food and cooking as ways to create healthy community.
The workshop is free, but space is limited and registration is required. For more information or to register, call FHN Hospice at 815-599-7240.
