Cooking Matters® is a cooking-based nutrition education course designed to teach low-income families how to prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget. Volunteer culinary instructors and University of Minnesota Extension Nutrition Educators share their time and expertise to lead hands-on courses that teach adults, teens, and kids how to purchase and prepare nutritious foods in healthful, safe, and tasty ways. This can mean the difference between feeding families for just one night and making sure they have the knowledge, skills, and resources to prepare healthy meals for a lifetime. The culinary instructor will serve as a teacher and role model, teaching key skills and inspiring participants to cook more healthy, inexpensive meals at home.
