Let’s Move Faith and Communities is excited to team up with Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters to train community health leaders on how to empower families with the skills to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy meals so their children get nutritious food at home.
As part of the No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger in America, Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters teaches participants to shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier choices and cook delicious, affordable meals. Founded in 1993, Cooking Matters and thousands of volunteer instructors have helped more than 150,000 low-income families in communities across the country learn how to eat better for less.

Cooking Matters hands-on courses empower families with the skills to be self-sufficient in the kitchen. Participants practice fundamental food skills, including proper knife techniques, reading ingredient labels, cutting up a whole chicken, and making a healthy meal for a family of four on a $10 budget. Each course is team-taught by a volunteer chef and nutrition educator and covers meal preparation, grocery shopping, food budgeting and nutrition. This webinar training will cover some of the fundamental food skills that are taught in Cooking Matters courses, including resources available to you like the Smart Phone App with recipes!
