Cooking Matters

Our students recently began taking culinary courses known as Cooking Matters. Cooking Matters brings together culinary and nutrition experts and other volunteers to lead local, hands-on courses that help participants learn how to prepare healthy and affordable meals.  This a program hosted by Ever Thrive Illinois, who make it their mission to provide healthier food options to our communities. The students are taking a liking to it, and they get to eat their creations too!
