Zelda Smith loves interacting with people and learning more about Cook County's vibrant and diverse communities. She enjoys sharing healthy food choices, believes that a proper diet is the foundation for better health, and is proud to know that her efforts assist individuals in improving their well-being and quality of life. 

As a community outreach worker, Zelda teaches residents how to eat well on a budget, prepare delicious recipes, and the benefits of an active lifestyle. Smith is passionate about helping those struggling to cook more nutritious meals for their families. She goes the extra mile to help them make healthy alternatives using the food they already have at home. 

Zelda loves it when participants are engaged, ask questions, enjoy the recipes, and find her lessons helpful. And she gets excited when they ask about registering for new classes.
