Healthy Acadia is excited to offer a free six-class “Cooking Matters” series in Sullivan beginning on April 25, 2017. Classes will meet on Tuesdays from 10:00am to 12:00pm at RSU 24 Adult Education through May 30, 2017. The series is geared toward those struggling with a tight food budget. Classes will offer participants an opportunity to learn easy ways to prepare healthy, delicious meals and stretch their food dollars.
“Cooking Matters teaches healthy eating habits, cooking skills, food shopping, and budgeting through a fun and hands-on learning experience,” said Nikki Fox, Healthy Acadia’s Hancock County Nutrition Education Coordinator. In each class, under the guidance of Fox, participants will work together to create a meal and enjoy sampling their completed dishes. Free take-home ingredients will be provided for participants each week to recreate one of the lesson’s recipes at home. A recipe book and other helpful kitchen tools are also provided upon graduation to support cooking meals at home and more healthful living.
This free, Cooking Matters class series is offered by Healthy Acadia in partnership with RSU 24 Adult Education. Participants are requested to commit to all six classes in the series. To register for this series, please contact RSU 24 Adult Education at (207) 422-4794 or register online at http://rsu24.maineadulted.org.
