Mountain Family Center offers Cooking Matters classes for adults

Mountain Family Center is coordinating with Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters to bring cooking classes for low-income families to Grand County.

This will be the third year the Center has provided Cooking Matters in the community.

This free six-week course empowers families who are vulnerable to hunger to learn the skills to create affordable, nutritious and tasty meals. Each week, participants learn to identify and prepare healthy food options while acquiring knowledge about a proper balanced diet through hands-on food preparation.

Meals are prepared at each class to share and, as an added bonus, participants get to take home groceries to make the same meal for their families.

Throughout the six-week course, the class shares ideas about budgeting for food as-well-as information about the public assistance programs available to help feed their families.

Hot Sulphur Springs Classes are Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. These classes began March 15 and there is still space for more adults.

Granby’s class will begin May 3 at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Classes in Fraser, Grand Lake and Kremmling will take place later in the year.
