“Cooking Matters” program is a six-week course of nutritional education and hands-on cooking instruction. The goal of the program is to help low to moderate income families learn how to prepare affordable meals that are tasty and healthy.
Cooking Matters classes are free and are fun as well as educational. Each class is led by a team of volunteers, including a chef, nutritionist and assistants. These volunteers are trained to help the participants make changes to their eating, cooking, and food-shopping habits. Each participant receives a participant guide that contains healthy recipes, shopping strategies, nutritional guides and kitchen safety basics.
The Cooking Matters program offered through Barnabas is a partnership with FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) and Share Our Strength, a national organization that addresses child hunger.
