(SAVANNAH, GA) Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, a support shelter for at-risk children and teens, will launch a guest dinner program in August to connect its residents with community leaders.

Every other Wednesday night, children and teens who are living in the shelter will prepare a meal and invite a guest speaker to join them for dinner. Ann Levett, superintendent of the Savannah-Chatham public schools, will speak at the first guest dinner program on Wednesday, Aug. 9.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to share a home cooked meal with these young scholars and look forward to hearing the advice they will offer me about how adults can best support them,” said Levett.

Dr. Linda Sacks, a Park Place volunteer, is working with outreach case manager Fran Wilson to plan the menu for each event. Residents at the Shelter have been cultivating fresh fruits and vegetables in an on-site garden since the spring, and they will be incorporated into the menus.

“This exercise will build community among the kids and give them a sense of the opportunities available to them in the Savannah community at large,” Wilson said.

The shelter is typically home to six to 10 kids and teenagers at any given time. Volunteers and house parents will stay involved with them during the dinners to help them set the table, prepare the meal and engage in conversation with the guests.

“We are so thrilled that community influencers want to reach out to our youth through this program,” said Julie Wade, executive director for Park Place Outreach. “Dr. Levett is a product of the local school system, so she is a testament to the success young people can achieve through perseverance in school.”

Enmarket Encourage Health Series Presents “Eat Well and Boost Your Energy With Phytochemicals” on June 21

By | Local NewsWIRE, Uncategorized, Visibility Team

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Tuesday, June 21, Ellen Blossman, Ph.D. will present, “Eat Well and Boost Your Energy With Phytochemicals” as the second of four lectures in the 2016 Encourage Health Education Series. The lecture will be hosted from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Auditorium of the Savannah Morning News, located at 1375 Chatham Parkway.

Blossman said, “The goal of this presentation is to raise awareness of the role of phytochemicals for our health and inspire the audience to choose nutrient-dense foods that will boost the immune system and, thereby, promote better health.”

A healthy lunch will be provided to attendees. Attendance is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required at Healthy Savannah’s website, http://healthysavannah.org/event-signup-form-eat-well-and-boost-your-energy-with-phytochemicals/.

While scientific research supports the role of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes for our health, Blossman plans to bring another nutritional category, called phytochemicals, to our attention. Now that scientists are now able to measure and classify them, and have found they contain “anti-aging, anti-disease, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.”

Blossman is a certified Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She also is certified in Advanced Food Healing Science and a Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master. She holds a Ph.D. in Spanish Literature and Language and is co-founder of Blue Heron Holistic Healing in Savannah, GA.

During Blossman’s presentation, Urban Hope, Inc., a nonprofit organization focused on helping the inner city children in Savannah create better lives for themselves, was selected to receive the $1,000 enmarket Encourage Health grant.
