The Wichita YMCA will once again offer a series of adult cooking classes for parents and caregivers.
These hands-on classes, called Cooking Matters, are focused on helping parents, pregnant women, or caregivers of kids learn how to make healthy, nutritious meals on a budget. It’s especially helpful for parents or caregivers from lower-income households because you’ll learn how to stretch that grocery budget!
The six-week series of classes are free, and are being held virtually. There are still upcoming classes open to new registrations.
You do not have to be a YMCA member to take the free cooking classes. (However, you do have register. See below for registration information.)
Weekly topics include:
- Free $20 grocery store gift card when you participate in 3 classes
- Meal planning and budgeting
- A virtual grocery store tour for affordable, healthy foods
- Getting your kids in the kitchen
Space is limited for this free program. For more information and to register, call Tammi Krier, Healthy Eating Director for the YMCA, at (316) 776-8176 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The cooking classes are taught in partnership with K-State Research and Extension and the program is locally supported by Delta Dental of Kansas, Dillons, and American AgCredit.
The schedule is below. Before registering, you should ensure that you’ll be able to attend at least five of the six classes.
