Learn how to cook healthy – on a budget - at this four-day cooking class, based on a cookbook called Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/day.

Learn how to cook healthy – on a budget! This four-day cooking class is based on a cookbook called Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/day by Leanne Brown. The book was written as part of Ms. Brown’s PhD thesis and includes a variety of healthy (and delicious!) recipes that can be prepared for just $4 per day – the amount per day that a person receives if he/she qualifies for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly Food Stamps).

Each session includes practical cooking instruction from Convivium chefs; exposure and hands-on experience preparing a variety of new real-food ingredients; as well as resources and tips on how to meal prep, navigate a grocery store, and eat healthy on a budget. (See each class’s itinerary below).

This class will consist of four sessions – two sessions each week, taking place on Sunday and Monday evenings, for two weeks. Participants must attend all four sessions. Kids ages 6-12 are welcome to join, free of charge, if accompanied by an adult. Kids 12-15 must also be accompanied by an adult and must register separately. Anyone 16+ can register and attend on their own.
