Cooking and Food Education

Whether you’re an experienced cook or just starting to learn how, cooking is a wonderful way to help people make healthy food choices.  With just a few basic ingredients you can create a meal that is delicious, saves you money and provides good nutrition for your family and friends. There is nothing like preparing a meal and eating it together to build relationships and bonds between people. Even kids can help — chopping vegetables, mixing ingredients, setting the table.  And they’ll like the food better if they’ve had a hand in creating it themselves.
