Teaching you how to prepare healthy meals on a limited budget
“Cooking Matters” is a national hands-on curriculum teaching about healthy eating and cooking. Families learn about nutrition, cook a healthy meal and eat in class. Then go home with a free bag of food.
Every fall Hilltop and Primary Care Partners have a “Cooking Matters” class in the Primary Care Partners Building at 3150 N. 12th St. in Grand Junction. It takes place once a week for 6 weeks. Families must be committed to attending all 6 weeks.
It is for a parent to attend with 1-2 children. Primary Care Partners patients and staff are eligible. It is not necessarily a class for overweight people, it is for all families wanting to eat healthier.
