We offer Food Skills programs throughout the year. They’re always fun and informative.


Date: Click on our calendar up top for program timing.
Location: Our Food Skills programs once all happened at the Nelson Community Food Centre, 602 Silica Street. These days, with the pandemic, many of our programs are online.

Our Food Skills program is running at half-speed while we await the completion of our new kitchen renovation. Our Food Skills coordinator, Hannah DeBoer-Smith, can be seen running the occasional food demo during our Good Food Bank but she, and we all, are looking forward to having a functioning kitchen space.  Stay tuned to this page for exciting program news. The kitchen is slated for completion mid-November.

While you wait, why not check out our Food Skills playlist on our YouTube channel. We try to provide simple recipes, tips and tricks, that’ll make it easier (and hopefully more fun) to cook with the healthy ingredients you pick up from the Good Food Bank every week. We included a couple samples below, but if you don’t want to miss any, subscribe to our YouTube channel.
