THE STORY:

Kristen Klosinski wrote -

Many of the people that Job Path supports are very interested in food and learning basic cooking skills. Although these individuals are very capable of learning how to cook, many of them have never been given the chance to acquire these important life skills. Instead, a more common story is that they are told when and what to eat and never how to make the choices themselves. The hope is that this class will give people the basic knowledge to be able to prepare a meal of their choice, either by themselves or with assistance, depending on the individual’s need. In addition, the class will teach basic nutritional information such as portion size, how to read nutrition labels and how to make healthy selections at the grocery store. An important component of this program will be buying groceries in preparation to cook. With an emphasis on community involvement, working professionals from the cooking and nutrition field will be invited to help guest-teach classes. In addition, classes will be held at a community center in Manhattan with field trips to places relevent to the program.

All donations will go directly towards the cooking program. We are in need of funding to buy food for each class and other supplies such as adaptive cooking equipment.

Thanks for your support!
