Let’s Cook teaches hands on cooking and nutrition education classes with the goal of improving the health of the community. The four part cooking class series teaches individuals how to cook nutritious family friendly meals on a budget. The classes place an emphasis on teaching participants how to better utilize SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and & WIC (Women, Infant & Children) benefits along with using seasonal produce to make healthy meals that the whole family will enjoy. A series of four weekly classes are led by a certified Chef from the Promise Culinary School. This is a hands-on cooking class in a commercial kitchen. All classes and ingredients are free and are designed to improve the diets of the community we serve.
Each week students spend approximately 2 1/2 hours in the kitchen cutting, chopping, cooking and tasting. Meet new friends and share the meal you just cooked. For those with children under 10, babysitting is provided free of charge. Children 10 years and older are invited to join in cooking with their parents as part of the class.
