Food Skills Programs

We’re launching two new, 8-week cooking (and eating!) programmes on Tuesdays and Thursdays in October and we hope you’ll join in the fun.

First in the day, Tuesday Lunches start Oct. 2 (10:30 am to 1:30 pm). If dinner works better for you, consider Thursday Night Family Dinners (3:30 to 6:30pm), kicking off Oct. 4.

Come learn to cook healthful, budget-friendly meals and have fun in the kitchen. The programmes cover all the basic skills and info you need to make good food at home. Each week you’ll sit down to a delicious meal you helped prepare.  Register today to reserve your spot(s) for lunch and/or dinner!
