Cooking Matters Course

Detroit Friendship House partners with Gleaners Community Food Bank once a year to host their groundbreaking nutrition-education program at our site. The 12-week program is designed to connect low-income individuals and families with food by teaching them how to prepare cost effective meals that are still healthy and delicious. Professional chefs work together with nutritionists to volunteer their time and expertise to lead the hands-on courses. By taking a recipe and preparing it with the attendees they show adults, teens, and kids how to prepare nutritious food in safe and tasty ways. The 12 weeks culminates with a field trip to the grocery store to learn how to shop for the most nutritious foods and the lowest cost.

Our clients tell us they value the program immensely, saying, “Working together with the experts to prepare food is so much more helpful than just being given a recipe and told ‘Good luck.”
