Citizens for a Better Grand Bay and the Compassionate Care Team of Grand Bay are sponsoring a series of four free cooking classes beginning in July. Call 251-865-7604 for starting date, for more information and to register.
Rachel Baxter, a certified Family and Consumer Science teacher, will conduct the classes at Grand Bay-St. Elmo Community and Senior Center, 11610 Highway 90 W., Mondays at 2 p.m. Each class will teach something new, all pertaining to stretching food dollars and preparing delicious family meals.
Classes are geared particularly to new cooks or low-income families so that they can learn how to spend SNAP or WIC food monies more efficiently. Week one will focus on food safety and budgeting; class two will teach knife skills and how to cut and prepare meats and vegetables. The third week will be on nutrition and how to follow a recipe, and week four will concentrate on how to stock a pantry and make simple sauces.
Register soon at above number; space is limited.
