Cooking with Cents
Cooking With Cents is an 8-session community kitchen program designed to engage community members living on low incomes in exploring strategies for saving money while eating nutritiously. During the 8 sessions, participants are offered information and the opportunity to share their own knowledge and experience on the weekly discussion topic.
While the sessions are adapted to the interest of participants past sessions included smart shopping techniques; stocking your pantry; all types of proteins including using inexpensive cuts of meat and cooking techniques; food waste and how it impacts the food system; and using herbs and spices to enhance our food.
In 2019, this program is made possible through funding received from the CB Powell Foundation.
