About Cooking Matters
Cooking Matters provides six-week class series on healthy cooking skills, nutrition education and food budgeting for people living on low incomes. Each class is led by a team of three trained volunteers – cooking facilitator, nutrition facilitator and class assistant – who work alongside a staff coordinator to facilitate fun, lively, interactive and informative classes. Participants engage in educational activities and help prepare a shared meal.
Cooking Matters is a partnership of Solid Ground and the national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
For class participants
We will all share a meal in class, and each class participant will take home a bag of food to practice cooking with the ingredients. At the end of the six weeks, there is a graduation where each participant who has come to 4+ classes will receive a chef knife, a cooking tool, and a book of recipes and nutrition tips. Each class participant is expected to come to each of the six weeks. If you need to miss a week, you can call or email Shana McCann (contact info below).
