The Arrowsmith Community Recreation Association will be hosting its Food Sense/Healthy Cooking on a Budget beginning next week.
This free, six-week program is funded by the Ministry of Health and the Regional District of Nanaimo, and managed by Diabetes Canada.
Food Sense/Healthy Cooking on a Budget will be held Feb. 21 to March 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each Wednesday in the Arrowsmith Hall kitchen on the Coombs Fairgrounds, 1014 Ford Rd. Participants must be 19 years of age and older and commit to attending each class.
Miranda Cockayne, a Certified Food Skills for Families community facilitator and Sports and Fitness nutritionist, will welcome everyone to discover just how much fun healthy, home cooking can be.
The program will strengthen cooking confidence and skills while providing the food knowledge to make sound meal, snack and beverage choices.
The class will prepare fresh home-cooked meals each week and enjoy a family-style dinner together.
This program must be pre-registered and space is limited to 12 people.
