RSU25 Adult Education and Healthy Acadia are excited to offer a free six-class Cooking Matters series on Wednesdays beginning in September and continuing into October. The series will offer participants an opportunity to learn about easy ways to prepare healthy, delicious meals and stretch food dollars.

“Cooking Matters teaches healthy eating habits, cooking skills, food shopping, and budgeting through six fun and hands-on classes,” stated Nina Zeldin of Healthy Acadia, who will be teaching the classes. “Healthy Acadia is excited to continue our wonderful collaboration with RSU 25 Adult Education to make this course available again.”

In each class, participants will work together to create a meal and enjoy sampling their completed dishes. Free take-home ingredients will be provided for participants to recreate the meal at home. A recipe book and other helpful kitchen tools are also provided to participants to support cooking at home.

“We are happy to be working with Healthy Acadia to offer this important class series to community members,” stated Leslie Murauckas, Director of RSU 25 Adult and Community Education. “This class will provide very useful skills and resources to participants.”

This Cooking Matters class series is geared to engage community members who are experiencing low income with knowledge and skills to eat healthfully on a limited budget. Participants are requested to commit to all six classes in the series.

The series is coordinated by Healthy Acadia’s Nutrition Education Initiative in partnership with RSU 25 Adult Education.
