Out of the Box Cooking Series Returns

posted 10/25/22 -- LCCAA Head Start Nutrition Staff will host virtual cooking lessons again this month.

The Build a Balanced Plate: Out-of-the-Box Recipe Series will feature hearty minestrone and a tasty fall salad. The two-part class will take place on Nov. 9 and 16 by Zoom. Both classes will meet at 1 p.m.

Registered families will receive boxes of ingredients to build a recipe and Registered Dietician Marge Robison will show how to prepare the recipe. Robison will provide nutrition and meal planning tips along the way.

“We want to empower parents to provide healthy and delicious meals at home,” said Food Service Manager Melinda Gray, who will also be part of the videos along with Production Lead Katherine Collazo. “We want to offer them options and hope they will gain confidence to be more creative with fresh ingredients.”

Preregistration is required and space is limited. Parents can register for one or both classes. There are great giveaways for Zoom participants. Register by visiting this link: https://forms.gle/4knogPwpiBrTd5kG8
