Be a part of Cooking Matters!
Cooking Matters® is a cooking-based, nutrition education program that empowers people to eat healthier and make the best use of their food resources. Cooking Matters® plays a critical role in Share Our Strength®'s No Kid Hungry campaign which is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching how to cook healthy, affordable meals. Participants learn to shop smarter, make healthier food choices, and cook delicious meals.
Each week a different meal plan is taught, prepared and shared during dinner, with participants leaving with a FREE bag of groceries to replicate the meal at home!

•Enhance Self-Efficacy in Cooking and Food Preparation
