Event description

Description

In conjunction with the Ohio Food Policy Network (OFPN) Summit, Local Matters is offering a hands-on Cooking Matters training on November 6 for up to 20 attendees. This session will cover how to use a learner-centered approach to engage diverse participants in cooking and skill-building experiences, as well as what is involved in providing the Cooking Matters program in your community. We will make some food together so you will not travel home hungry!

This workshop was created to fill an expressed need among stakeholders to build capacity and offer food education in addition to increasing food access. Delivering Cooking Matters in your community will help to increase healthy food access and strengthen relationships in your community.

The workshop will begin just after the summit, in the same room, from 3:45-6:00pm. We ask that no more than two participants from any organization attend the workshop. This event is limited due to the hands-on nature and engagement. Please note that you must be registered for the OFPN summit in order to attend this workshop.

Please email media@local-matters.org if you need to cancel your registration no later than Friday, November 3 - space is limited, so we appreciate your support in allowing every seat to be filled!


Cooking Matters is a national program of Share Our Strength, and Local Matters has been a program partner in Ohio since 2012. An innovative approach to hunger, it is proven to help people further stretch their dollars, and build the skills and confidence to eat well and feed their families. Local Matters currently delivers this progam with many partners including Columbus Public Health, OhioHealth, Mary Haven, Ohio Wesleyan University, ProMedica, and Freedom Schools.
