This program consists of six lessons each lasting approximately two hours. With the help of two experienced nutrition educators, participants will gain the skills and confidence to make healthy, wallet friendly meals for their family. Each week, participants will receive take home groceries, which they can use at home to practice a recipe they learned in class.

The class series also includes:

  • Participatory food preparation that provides cooking and food safety instruction
  • Engaging nutrition activities and discussions
  • Practice with food budgeting
  • Interactive grocery store visit and $10 challenge
  • Recipe book for use at home
  • Certificate of completion

Class series are taught throughout the community, including but not limited to community centers, churches, schools and local MSU Extension offices. Group series are available if there are 6 to 15 people, and at least half of the group is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible.
