Path to Plate program June 5 in Kennard

KENNARD –  A Path to the Plate – Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School will be presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service from 5:30-8 p.m. June 5 at Larry Bruce Gardens, 3198 County Road 4600 in Kennard.

“Path to the Plate offers a unique opportunity for consumers to learn about Texas agriculture production and how it impacts their health and their homes,” said Larry Pierce, AgriLife Extension regional agricultural program leader, Overton.

Cost is $25. All participants will receive the new Dinner Tonight Essentials Cookbook, kitchen goodies and have a chance to win door prizes.

Participants can enjoy a farm-to-table meal experience during the dinner, Pierce said. They will also learn quick and easy-to-make recipes from the Essentials cookbook and hear from Dr. Dan Hale, AgriLife Extension meats specialist, College Station, and Kelley Sullivan, owner of Santa Rosa Ranch near Houston, to learn about local cattle operations and other agriculture production in the East Texas area.

“We are targeting busy people who still want to make time for meal preparation and feel good about what they are feeding themselves and their family by knowing where their food comes from,” said Paula Butler, AgriLife Extension family and community health regional program leader, Dallas. “Our goals are to promote family mealtime, teach families healthy meal planning and food preparation techniques, and to promote Texas agriculture.”

To register, go to or call 979-845-2604.
