This program embraces and strengthens both family values and health as it increases children and families basic knowledge of nutrition and cooking skills. A meal is planned, prepared and shared by the whole group. For the purpose of the program, “family” is defined as any structure that embraces several individuals who live and/or co-exist together. Hence, members of a community are part of the family community.
Children gain the awareness that even at a young age, what they eat can have an impact on their health; and adults learn that even at a later age, it is never too late to take steps to improve ones’ health.
Class includes both nutrition education and a hands-on meal preparation component.
