Cooking Matters for Adult/Child Teams

Cooking Matters for Families series

Eat Smart New York is offering a new series of classes called Cooking Matters for Families are open to parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, moms and dads and are FREE!

A Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben county nutrition educator from the ESNY program will coordinate and facilitate the class. In each session, food preparation and cooking skills are practiced along with interactive nutrition activities. After the meal is prepared, all the participants eat together. And as an added bonus, each family takes home the ingredients to make the main dish with their children for their family at home.

The Cooking Matters classes are sponsored by Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit that is working to end childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. Cooking Matters has received special recognition from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for excellence in nutrition education.

The Cooking Matters series is limited to 10 participants (5 parent/child teams – children must be 8 years old or older). So, call today to register your space at 607-664-2300.
