Cooking Matters for Families is a hands-on nutrition program. Parents/guardians with their children, ages 8-18, learn about preparing healthy meals together, food safety, grocery shopping, and budgeting for food.

The program consists of five lessons, lasting two hours each. With the help of an experienced chef and nutrition educator, participants will gain the skills and confidence to make healthy, budget-friendly meals at home as a family. Each week, participants will receive take-home groceries, which they can use at home to practice, as a family, a recipe they learned in class.

Please plan to attend all five sessions.

Cost: FREE
