Community Food Share is pleased to offer everyone in our community the opportunity to learn how to cook nutritious, delicious and affordable meals in a fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There is no cost and everyone who is able is encouraged to participate in the meal preparation and, of course, the clean-up!

Through hands-on cooking sessions this is a unique opportunity to learn new food skills, increase awareness of healthy foods and build new friendships by sharing what you have prepared.
