EDUCATION & NUTRITION

Part of Project SHARE’s mission is to provide numerous opportunities for our clients to learn about health and nutrition for their entire family.

Kids in the Kitchen

This year Kids in the Kitchen will be held the Wednesday after distribution week. Children learn to cook and prepare easy, fun, and nutritious recipes in the Project SHARE kitchen. All children between the ages of 5-12 are welcome to attend. Please call ahead to register children for Kids in the Kitchen and check the calendar for upcoming dates.

What to do with…

A hands-on cooking class for adults designed to promote healthy eating by using seasonal produce and food products frequently handed out at the Farm Stand or offered during our monthly food distribution. A day and evening class are offered each month to try to accommodate most schedules. The food is prepared and then enjoyed by everyone! Ingredients to prepare the recipes at home are also usually provided.

Food for Life Cooking

Our dynamic group, the Food for Life ladies, prepare healthy recipes and warm hospitality for all our volunteers and recipients during the week of distribution.  The ladies use ingredients offered in our distribution to provide creative and nutritious ways to nourish the whole family. The Food for Life ladies meet on Monday of distribution week from 1 – 3pm to prepare food.
