Cooking for SaludTM is a bilingual English and Spanish parent nutrition education, behavior modification program designed to teach parents how to make healthy changes at home that will improve their families’ short and long-term health outcomes. Cooking for SaludTM gives participants tools to change their cooking and eating habits, with guest chef volunteers and instruction centered around food and nutrition. Participation in this program requires a 7-week commitment. We ask that all participants attend every class, once a week for 3 hours. All program participants will also be asked to complete questionnaires about demographics, family history, and eating habits. Additional biometrics around health may be conducted in order for our organization to gather statistical data on the lasting impact of our program. When participants graduate, they become Kitchenistas and continue to be involved in a community of support that has the mission of expanding and sharing knowledge about healthy living. Participation in the program is prioritized for National City residents.
This program is for National City and South County Parents. Cooking for SaludTM takes place every Spring and Fall on Thursdays from 9am to 12pm for 7 weeks.
