Let's Start Cooking is a 6-week course for adults with intellectual disabilities beginning to cook.
Each week a small group of participants (6-8 max) are taught different cooking techniques in a step-by-step approach, with lots of hands-on time allocated for each person. Food safety for cooking at home is taught, and tips on budgeting, planning, and shopping for healthy food are shared. Participants take home leftovers or ingredients after workshops, as well as cookware and basic ingredients pantry to enable cooking at home.
Cooking workshops are typically 2 hours in length and run throughout the year as capacity allows. Spaces are limited so if you or a client you work with would like to be involved please contact us to register.
Thanks to the Harry E. Foster Foundation for funding this program.
