Eating properly is important for yourself and your family.

Surprisingly cooking can be easy and affordable. Have you wondered whether you could stretch your budget and make great-tasting, healthy meals every day of the week?

That is what "Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters for Adults" is all about.

Second Harvest is offering hands-on classes for adults from 6-8 p.m. every Monday, beginning on Nov. 11, at Zion United Church of Christ.

These classes will help you make the most of what you've got, so that your family gets the best nutrition possible.

Participants will be able to meet with the chef and nutrition volunteers, who will teach you how to budget your food money, buy healthy ingredients and cook delicious meals.

Each participant will get a meal at every class, plus will have the opportunity to take home groceries every week to prepare the meal from class.

The sessions will also include a guided grocery tour and store gift card, and the opportunity to learn hands-on cooking skills with the chef instructor.

You will learn about nutrition and how to make healthy food choices and grocery shopping tips and learn how to stretch your food budget.

Those who sign up for the classes are committed to attending each class of the six-week course.

Those interested in participating in "Cooking Matters for Adults" at Zion United Church of Christ, should call Barry at 484-553-6264 and provide your name and phone number.
