Asian American Resource Center
The Asian American Resource Center (AARC) created RICE – Recreational and Intergenerational Community Education, a program designed to address the intergenerational wellness and education needs of Austin residents, with particular focus on the underserved Asian American community. The RICE program, which began June 3, 2014, is a comprehensive educational program tailored to meet the needs of seniors, adults and youth.
Rice is more than a simple grain; it represents the foundation of the Asian diet and health. In Sanskrit, the word for rice also carries the meaning “sustainer of the human race.” Rice is a staple food across much of the Asian continent, spanning countries from Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, India, Pakistan and beyond.
The new RICE program encompasses several components including:
- Recreational & Wellness Activities
Includes Tai Chi, table tennis, Asian board games, crafts, other. Hula for Health and Yoga coming soon.
