Real Meals (on hold until fall)
Real Meals is a participant-driven cooking and nutrition workshop series intended to help families gain skills and knowledge that will help them get more nutritional bang for their buck.
Once a month, Real Meals hosts a workshop with a special guest – a nutritionist, a chef, farmer, a mom, a home cook, etc. – who shares their knowledge as we collectively prepare a meal.
Child care is included, and participants are sent home with recipes and ingredients.
Call (406) 829-0873 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
