Cooking Matters™

A six-lesson course, instructed once a week for six weeks, focused on preparing and shopping for healthy meals on a limited budget.

Cooking Matters™(formerly Operation Frontline), a program of Share Our Strength, is a cooking-based nutrition class.
This program provides a long-term solution to hunger and poor nutrition by demonstrating strategies to get the best nutrition possible on a limited budget.

Through a partnership with the North Texas Food Bank, the six-week hands-on classes are instructed in the kitchen by chefs and nutritionists who volunteer to teach nutrition, cooking, food-budgeting and shopping techniques. 

Highlights of the course include: a bag of groceries to prepare recipes learned about each week, a grocery store tour, and a potluck dinner during the last class.



Volunteers and chefs are needed!
