Free Community Cooking Classes!

Beginner Community Class (Adult):
In this 6-week series (2 hours per session) is designed for everyone from teenagers to senior citizens and is perfect for all experience levels.  The primary focus is to define “healthy eating” and to help participants develop their cooking skills.  Each week includes approximately an hour of cooking (or a little more) and ends with sharing the meal prepared.  During mealtime, the participants discuss key concepts of nutrition and meal planning.  The minimum age to sign up is 13. Young children are not permitted. Spots are limited and sign-up is required.

Intermediate Community Class (Adult):
This is a continuation of the lessons learned from the beginner class, and also runs 6 weeks, 2 hours per session. We build on culinary nutrition principles learned during the beginner classes and focus on more advanced knife skills and cooking techniques. You must first complete the beginner class to participate.
