WINTERSVILLE — With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Wintersville Woman’s Club will welcome Theresa Golden, executive director of Refuge for Women Pittsburgh, as its guest speaker Thursday.
The luncheon and business meeting gets under way at noon at St. Florian Event Center in Wintersville. Members are reminded to bring small personal care items for donation to the A.L.I.V.E. Shelter as the project for the month.
The club launched its meeting year for 2022-23 with its Sept. 15 meeting attended by 25 members and one guest.
President Iris Craig presided and extended the welcome with Barb Grimm offering the meditation and grace.
Grimm, health and wellness committee chair, introduced the guest speaker, Weirton area resident Drazen Frankovitch, owner of EZ Fresh Meals, located at 762 Main St., Wintersville. With him was one of the chefs, Tyler Ewan.
Frankovitch discussed the importance of food to health and gave an overview of the business that provides healthy, ready-to-eat meals that can be ordered online or by drive-through. It is not a dine-in restaurant. Delivery is available.
“Our vision is to create healthy meals that are enjoyable, that are ready to eat, that are fresh, where all you have to do is simply heat them up in the oven or microwave and they’re ready to go,” Frankovitch told the club members.
“When it comes to sustainability you want a diet that works for you and you can follow the rest of your life,” he said. “We try to preach making better choices, and better choices come in when you have food readily available to eat when you get those hunger cravings.”
