Community Cooking Classes during the months of April, May, and June have generously been sponsored by Coordinated Care who is helping build healthier communities one meal at a time.
Class Theme: Italian Classics (Clean out your fridge style!)
Let's get ready for summer by cleaning out our fridges and pantries! We'll talk about what makes the perfect throw-together minestrone soup (hint: almost anything!) and why it's important to eat your colors.
• Bring containers to take home recipes prepared in class.

What class participants have to say about The Kitchen:
In The Kitchen, Sada has a seat at the table and a full meal that she made herself in front of her. She loves many things about the Community Classes, but her favorite part is the shared meal at the end of class—when everyone sits down to enjoy what they’ve made. “It’s the community. Getting together with everybody. Meeting new people ... Sitting down with everybody, talking with people I’ve never met until now—it’s wonderful.” To read more about Sada's experience follow this link.
Jamie said that the classes have made healthy food more accessible for her. She’s learning how to cook fresh ingredients rather than turning to processed foods. “I didn’t realize food was so simple. It’s stuff you could go buy in stores and isn’t so hard to find.” To read more about Jaime's story follow this link.
