COOKING CLASSES

Whether you’re experienced in the kitchen or don’t know how to boil an egg, we have a cooking class for you!

One of the main goals of The Nourish & Develop Foundation is to increase food literacy – to give people the skills and confidence to create healthy and nutritious food at home.

Our community is fortunate to have access to beautiful, local, food products and our mission is to teach you how to use them! While each of our cooking classes cater to different skill levels and interests, they share one thing in common: delicious food.

From preserving to bread making, learning in a social setting increases the opportunity to connect with your neighbours through food and fun. Though most are organized and taught in a group setting, individual classes are available upon request.

We firmly believe that access to good food and food education should not be inhibited by your financial situation. Most of our classes are offered on a voluntary donation model, but there are sponsored spots available for all of our cooking classes.

For information on our current classes, please look for our posters on our social media pages or check our online calendar.

Please note, our facility is not nut-free.

If you have an allergy concerns, please contact us.

YOUNG CHEFS CLUB

Teaching our kids to cook is a skill that will carry them through their whole life.

That is why it is important that they learn the basic skills, like measuring and recipe reading, and understand the benefits of making food from scratch! There are a few programs for youth at the Nourish Hub for you to choose from. Some are taught in house by our staff, others are 3rd party classes.

Contact our Community Kitchen Coordinator or visit our calendar to see upcoming classes.
