The Aberdeen Food Bank, in conjunction with the Idaho Food Bank, will sponsor a “Cooking Matters” class at the Aberdeen Food Bank at the Cavalry Chapel building. It will be held starting Thursday, July 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., then each following Thursday, for six weeks. All adults and teenagers interested in learning to cook on a budget are invited to sign up.
This is a cooking, nutrition and budgeting course designed for low-income families. Those using the food bank will be given priority, but other Aberdeen residents can attend the class. This free course is designed for at least 10 students and lasts two hours. Through the free six week hands-on course, you can learn how to select nutritious and low-cost ingredients and learn to prepare them in flavorful ways that provide the best nourishment to you and your family. They would like at least 15 participants. If they have enough interested parties, it may be possible to add another class later.
Chris Sheppard and other qualified people from the Idaho Food Bank will teach the course and participants can receive free cookbooks and food at the conclusion. Participants will receive a meal to consume during each class period. A bag of free groceries will be given each week to adult participants. Hands on learning and a textbook, graduation certificate and gift bag will be given at the conclusion of the course.
