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: The Spice Kitchen
Learning to use spices is one of the best and easiest ways to change the way you cook. Besides adding flavor, spices can also add nutritional value, improve digestion, and also boost immunity. In this class, we'll explore some simple ways to add flavor to dishes and create our own spice mixes to take home.
• Bring containers to take home recipes prepared in class.

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.
