Cooking Matters for Families

What's for dinner?  A delicious, healthy meal for four for under ten dollars!  How can you do it?  Learn by attending a Cooking Matters for Families class taught by MSU Extension nutrition instructors.  Each spot in the class has a value of over $200, but it is of no-cost to qualified participants.

This class is tailored for families with children ages 8 years and older.  Lessons include nutrition, meal planning, budgeting and kitchen basics such as knife skills and stocking a pantry.  Children will actively participate in food preparation and cooking.  A chef will prepare a recipe for everyone to sample in class.

Classes meet once a week for seven weeks and classes are two hours.  For more information, please call 248-858-0897 or visit our web page.
