    Happy Lunar New Year!

    Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, begins on the first new moon of lunar year. This year, the holiday begins today, February 12, and according to the Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the year of the ox. Although in the US the holiday is sometimes referred to as Chinese New Year, it’s observed by many other Asian cultures including South Korea, Vietnam, Singapore and Tibet and goes by several other names, such as Tết and Losar.

    Festivities differ between cultures, but the theme is the same: celebrating with family and honoring ancestors.

    Virtual Inspiration with EAT RIGHT PHILLY

    Throughout the pandemic, Drexel’s EAT RIGHT PHILLY team has conducted virtual programming with students throughout the city. At one middle school, nutrition coordinator, Miranda Rowe, has been working with the school nurse to conduct an afterschool Cooking Club.

    Rowe encouraged students in her school-day classes to join the club so they could learn how to cook simple, healthy recipes. One seventh-grade student, who participated in the club last year, decided to attend again this year. After making a Pasta Primavera recipe in the club, this student made it for herself and her siblings one evening for dinner. She added some grilled chicken and used the vegetables that she had available to her. She liked it so much that she sent Rowe a picture of her recipe success.

    Rowe, who joined the EAT RIGHT PHILLY TEAM in August, has been excited to work with this group of students and was thrilled that this one student was inspired to share her culinary accomplishment.
