Food Skills for Active Seniors

Course Information

We are fortunate to be able to offer this is a great free program. In this six-week program, participants will learn how to cook a variety of different dishes. At the end of each session, the group will share a meal together. One week, the class will go on a field trip to the grocery store where they will learn about how to purchase food affordably. Because each member of the class will assist in the making of a meal each week, it is important that participants attend every session. 

Session topics include:

  • Session      1: Variety for Healthy Eating
  • Session      2: Vegetables, Fruits & Whole Grain Foods 
  • Session      3: Protein Foods & Healthy Fats
  • Session      4: Planning Healthy Meals, Snacks and Beverages
  • Session      5: Savvy Shopping (Supermarket Tour)
  • Session      6: Celebration! 

This curriculum focuses on eating well and staying active for overall great health.  It is designed for the needs of older adults and provides an opportunity to meet new friends and reinforces healthy eating habits. Participants will receive the handbook Cooking Connections: Cooking for the Active Senior
