ATHOL: 1) Nutrition and Long Term Food Storage; 2) Is C.E.R.T. for YOU?

Thursday, September 14th, 2017 at 7pm - 9pm

Location: Athol Community Center, 30355 N 3rd St, Athol, ID 83801 (South of Hwy 54 on 3rd St)

This event is in the past.

1) Beyond Beans and Rice: Nutrition and Long Term Food Storage
Presented by Alan & Stacey

Beans and rice are a good starting point for long term food storage, but they don't have all the nutrients you need.  We'll start with a beans and rice diet and show how adding various foods fills in the missing nutrients while talking about the health effects of not having those nutrients.  We'll consider commercially preserved foods and home preserved foods as well as a supplement-based storage options for those who want simplicity and space efficiency.

2) Is C.E.R.T. for YOU?
Presented by Alan & Brenda Bramwell

Community Emergency Response Teams are nationwide, and the Inland Northwest has certified its first graduating class; over 50% of the members were from our INW Prep Group!  Instructors Alan & Brenda explain the volunteer program, which "has a place for everyone."  The training is top notch and the fun is over the top!
This presentation will be repeated on Sat Sept 16th in Newport

For cost effectiveness, the Spirit Lake and Athol groups meet together on the 2nd THURSDAYS of the month
(Building rentals are $30 per session!).

Our intention is to teach and learn from each other as we create a sense of community. Other "neighborhood" meetings commonly evolve from the larger group, where like-minded folks find ways to support each other in tranquil times. Alternative communications, gardening, and other skills prepare us for possibly tougher times.

Discussions, training and topics vary; come out & join us, get to know your neighbors!


We "pass the hat" to defray room rental costs, support our hosts, build a library and disseminate information; $5 donation is requested, but not required.
