FAIRFAX, VA – RSVP-Northern Virginia is partnering with the University Mall Giant to present a free nutrition seminar for seniors, Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, at 10:30 a.m., in Fairfax.

The University Mall Giant is located at 10653 Braddock Road, Fairfax, VA, 22032, at the intersection of Braddock and Ox roads, across from the main entrance to George Mason University.

Giant in-store registered nutritionist Marissa Donovan, MS, RD, LDN, will lead the 90-minute free class which will include a tour of the store highlighting healthy food choices for seniors. Donovan will share tips on eating healthy with a budget in mind and how to create a balanced healthy plate.
