One life in partnership with the Clark County Food Bank Nutrition Education Program periodically offers cooking classes to low-income community members to help them maximize their food resources. Classes include hands-on cooking education, combining nutrition, menu planning, budgeting, and kitchen safety and sanitation. Armed with these new skills, participants begin to unravel the patterns of food insecurity. Classes run in a series of six consecutive weeks using curricula materials in partnership with Share Our Strength’s Operation Frontline Program (www.strength.org). Each class is held once a week, for two hours.
A team of trained volunteers, consisting of a Chef Instructor, Lead Assistant, and Shopper, coach participants in lively cooking sessions. Participants work together to prepare and cook each week's menus, eat together, clean up, and participate in education messages. A take-home grocery bag of ingredients is provided for most participants each week so they may introduce menus in their households and practice cooking skills during the week.
If you are interested in participating in a class, give us a call and we will let you know about signing up for our next class.
