The need for physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our approach to some of the basic things we took for granted just a couple of months ago. The way we shop for groceries has become more complicated, products we regularly choose may not be available, and food costs are increasing.

The Kidney Foundation, in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Nephrology Dietitians (CAND) and the Canadian Society of Nephrology (CSN) are proud to present, COVID-19, and your Renal Diet – What You Need to Know.

This webinar will include a cooking demonstration.   You’ll also learn about kidney-friendly pantry staples to stock up on, how to use them in different ways, shopping and food safety tips, and recipes to try from the Kidney Community Kitchen.


Thursday June 25th, 2020 - 12:15 – 1:45 Eastern Time
