Cooking Matters

Cooking Matters

Cooking Matters for Adults is a nutrition program where participants will learn how to eat healthy, cook and grocery shop on a limited budget. The program consists of six lessons, lasting approximately two hours each. With the help of an experienced chef and nutrition educator, participants will gain the skills and confidence to make healthy, budget friendly meals for their family.

Each week, participants will receive take-home food, 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 10 to 15 people, and at least half of the group is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible.  If you are interested in scheduling or participating in a Cooking Matters for Adults program please contact an MSUE Nutrition professional.
