VNA partners with Share Our Strength, a national organization working to end childhood hunger in the United States, to offer these free, hands-on courses which engage children and families at risk of hunger and malnutrition. After learning the basics of good nutrition, along with cooking and financial management skills, participants are empowered with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make healthy and affordable snacks and meals. This results in healthier children who are ready to learn, and greater financial stability for participating families.
Tickets are $50 in advance, $55 at the door.
