Cooking for One uses real-life examples and opportunities to brainstorm ways to make cooking for one easier for you while keeping food safety, nutrition and budget in mind.

MSU Extension nutrition and physical activity programs provide participants with tips and tricks to include healthy choices into any lifestyle and budget. Cooking for One and other MSU Extension nutrition and physical activity programs are funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. Both programs aim to reach limited resource audiences, who are eligible for one or more of the following programs: Free/reduced school lunch; Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR), Head Start, SNAP Bridge Card/EBT, WIC, and other assistance programs. We aim to have at least half of every class qualify by income.

Registration is intended for Michigan residents. Extension services are available in every state, and we encourage you to reach out to your local network for similar programming.

These courses will all be held virtually, using Zoom. You will receive additional information for Zoom before the program begins. 

We encourage you to attend all 6 sessions. You must attend at least 4 sessions to receive a certificate of completion.

Whether you’re living on your own for the first time, a single college student, a hard-working adult, or a senior on your own, cooking for one can be fun! Over the course of six, 1-hour virtual lessons, you will:

  • Learn ways to make cooking for one simple and enjoyable
  • Learn helpful tips and tricks to making healthy choices, like eating well and being active
  • Receive and discuss real recipes made for one

There is no cost for this class, but you must preregister.
