Working with the families at the Athens Area Homeless Shelter was truly a special experience. Typically, kids are not allowed to go into the kitchen at the shelter. For this course, however, kids were welcomed into the kitchen to learn and participate with their families. The kids really loved being in the kitchen and helping to prepare meals. Many of the mothers reported feeling more comfortable cooking with their children after participating in the course.
At the end of the course, participants received the book, Cooking Matters for Families, including recipes and meal planning tips, as well as free cutting boards, meat thermometers, and a $25 Wal-Mart gift card.
