Thursdays (five lessons)

As families navigate the Coronavirus crisis, planning and preparing meals can be an incredible challenge in an already stressful time. Cooking Matters at Home offers ideas for how families can use what foods are available to create quick, family-friendly, low-cost meals. Please Note – This is not a cooking class for children.

Over the course of five, 1-hour online lessons topics are: 
  • Family Meals
  • Food Safety
  • Kids in the Kitchen
  • Recipes and Snacking

This series is offered at no cost to the participant.

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, utilizing Zoom. You will receive additional information for Zoom before the program begins. 

MSU Extension nutrition and physical activity programs provide participants with tips and tricks to include healthy choices into any lifestyle and budget. Our nutrition 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.
