Cooking Matters for Adults

Course overview

Cooking Matters for Adults, teaches low-income adults about healthy meal preparation and sensible shopping on a limited budget. This curriculum is also available in Spanish.

Each week participants observe a Chef-led cooking demonstration, after which the group breaks into teams who then prepare that same recipe. Once the food is baking or simmering, the entire group sits down for a nutritional overview of the recipes/foods just prepared. The group shares a meal and then takes home a bag of groceries and the recipe in order to practice at home, as well as serve a homemade meal.
