Support Groups

Community Kitchen

This is a fun, inexpensive way to cook nutritious meals, and an opportunity to learn new recipes and try out new foods. You will take part in two sessions: one for planning and recipe selection, and one for cooking. Meals are divided among the group to take home. This subsidized program supports those with low incomes.
