Class Helps Families Learn How To Cook HealthyPosted: Updated:
Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering a free way for families to learn how to cook healthy.
Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County is offering a free family cooking class this summer to show people how to make healthy meals with locally grown foods.
The class is open to anyone. The goal is to help parents and kids find new ways to eat healthy.
"So we picked this, like kohlrabi, fresh fennel, and parsnips, so things that people might have never tasted before," nutrition educator April Lynn Bennett said.
"The benefit of this class is that we can show them exactly what to do from when they get them from a farmers' market or the store, how to store them, how to prepare them and then they can actually see their kids eat them," she said.
The class is on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to noon throughout the summer.
You're asked to sign up in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 315-788-8450, extension 265.
