Apr 10, 2017 02:00PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger
The Cabarrus Health Alliance has been offering these cooking classes for many years. Each class is geared towards giving each person some new and healthy meal ideas that they can make at home.
The classes are instructor-led and each participant is able to view the instruction. Each class is packed with nutrition education and information.
We were curious about these classes and reached out to their chef and teacher, Meghan Charpentier, to learn a little bit more about them.
Tell us a little bit about the Healthy Cooking Classes that the Cabarrus Health Alliance offers. When and how did they start?
We may have cycles of funding that support cooking classes, but regardless always have the opportunity to offer the classes year round as a stand alone program offered by CHA.
What can someone expect while attending?
Each month we have a different theme or topic. We offer the same class 2-3 times per month on the same topic. We go through 3-5 different recipes based on that theme. Each recipe is fit for all who are looking to live a healthier lifestyle.
Whether you are a diabetic, worried about how much sodium you are consuming, have any allergies or are simply just looking for new recipes, these classes are for you as everyone can benefit from changing the foods we are consuming.
We focus on using food as medicine and introducing new foods that you may not try or cook with regularly.
Can anyone attend?
How many more classes are left?
Where can someone sign up? Is there a fee?
You must register in advance and payment must also be received two business days in advance of the class to confirm your spot. We do need a minimum of 5 people to hold the class and can have a maximum of 12.
