The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' Connecting with Community series will be joined by nutritionist, Deb Phillips, who will speak about maintaining healthy eating habits.

Focusing on summer in the Berkshires, Phillips will show how local residents are fortunate to have opportunities to eat locally, support sustainable agriculture, and to buy foods from local farm markets that are situated throughout the county.  Healthier eating choices can boost immune systems and lead to healthier, more active lives.  Phillips will guide participants through the process of integrating these healthy eating habits into our lives on a daily basis, starting from these summer months of bountiful produce and continuing throughout the year.

Deb Phillips is a licensed dietetic nutritionist and certified health education specialist. She holds a bachelor's degree in Nutrition from Cornell and a master's from Russell Sage.  She has additional training in functional and integrative medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
