Cooking Matters®

Cooking Matters works in communities across the country to help parents and caregivers develop their skills when shopping for and cooking healthy foods on a budget. Cooking Matters is a program run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. Cooking Matters has been helping families lead healthier lives for 30 years.

Program Objectives

FLIPANY is the Florida partner of the national Share Our Strength program that connects kids, families, and adults with healthy food by teaching them how to prepare healthy, tasty, low-cost snacks and meals.

Components

Cooking Matters is a 12 hour course, most commonly implemented via 6 individual classes lasting 2 hours in length, provided 1 time per week. Variations may occur to meet site needs, however the course must be at least 6 weeks in duration, and must total 12 hours. FLIPANY provides Cooking Matters courses to youth, teens, adults, and families utilizing the participant based materials. Cooking Matters courses may be provided as a Fee for Service course, or through a grant funded initiative. Individual Cooking Matters lessons may be utilized for shorter term engagements, however such will not be considered a Cooking Matters Course.
