FREE 6-Week Class

Cooking Matters teaches families how to prepare and shop sensibly for healthy meals on a limited budget. Each week, participants will be sent home with a bag of groceries to prepare the recipe they learned during the course that evening. Free child care is available for participating parents with kids 3 months and older.

By initiating discussions and introducing activities that build upon participant’s own experiences, instructors create effective learning opportunities. Course participants build confidence in their new skills through active class participation, enabling positive behavior changes in daily life. Classmates also help one another by sharing feedback on each other’s progress. Participants receive ingredients weekly to practice making the class recipes at home. By using what they learn in class at home, Cooking Matters MA course graduates maximize their food resources, make healthier choices for their families, and prepare balanced, delicious meals.

Registration will be available prior to the next class.
