Cooking Matters is a series of hands-on classes taught by volunteer nutritionists and chefs. The classes are intended to teach participants nutrition information, healthy food preparation, and shopping on a limited budget. After each lesson, participants receive a bag of groceries in order to recreate the meal at home.
Cooking Matters helps empower low-income families to eat healthier, shop smarter, try new foods, and learn how to make meals they might not have tried on their own.
The Food Bank collaborates with community partners that serve low-income families by hosting healthy cooking and nutrition lessons. Each course meets once a week for six weeks. The Food Bank provides groceries, recipes, and curriculum books, in addition to graduation gifts at the end of each course. If you would like more information, or are interested in hosting a six-week course, please contact Jessica Dewey or 918-936-4566..
