Share Our Strength®, a national nonprofit, is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. The No Kid Hungry® campaign combines access with education. Through our Cooking Matters® program, we also teach families how to cook and shop for healthy, affordable and delicious meals.
On this site, there are two opportunities to sign up for:
Cooking Matters for Child Care Professionals teaches child care professionals how to cook healthy, affordable and delicious meals and create a positive food environment for the kids in their care. Courses are offered to center-based and family home child care professionals. Typically courses are in a one-day format; however, there might be a few courses which are taught as a series. Please look carefully at the calendar for more details.
Cooking Matters at the Store, is a guided grocery store tour that teaches families how to identify and purchase healthy and affordable foods. This tour is an hour and a half long and for child care professionals and the families that they care for.
If you are interested in bringing a Cooking Matters course or tour to your area other than the ones listed on this site, please Contact the Organizer and we can try to accomodate your request!
