The Cooking Matters program utilizes home cooks, professional chefs, and nutritionists who volunteer their time and expertise to lead hands-on courses that teach adults how to purchase and prepare nutritious foods in healthful, safe and tasty ways. Participants learn to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier choices and cook delicious, affordable meals. This knowledge can mean the difference between feeding families for just one night, and making sure they have the knowledge, skills and resources to prepare healthy meals for a lifetime.
It’s available again in Crook County at the COCC Open Campus on Wednesdays from 5-7 pm. This six week course starts on October 11th and runs through November 15th. Open for adults from households at or below 200% of the federal poverty level guidelines, participants are asked to commit the full six-weeks. Class sizes are limited, so register today to reserve your spot – http://hdffa.org/portfolio-posts/cooking-matters/
