Cooking Matters for Families

Cooking Matters offers cooking and nutrition education for community members facing food-insecurity. We provide courses and tours throughout El Paso County to teach skills for creating healthy meals and stretching food budgets to ensure families are fed and nourished. Our classes are hands-on, skill-building, and discussion based to introduce low-income families to healthy possibilities within their financial means. We staff classes with volunteer nutrition and culinary experts from the community, who commit to attending and instructing a 2 hour class once a week for 6 weeks. Volunteers can instruct and/or assist classes. Full list of volunteer roles here.

Total Time requirement is about 3 hours/week (30mins before + 2hr class + 30mins after).
