Cooking Programs​​

The Hub's Cooking Programs create space for patrons and community members to share their skills, exchange recipes, learn about new flavors, and pick-up kitchen tips to make cooking fun and easier. 

 

We offer in-pantry cooking demonstrations and sample, recipes and handouts, and a lending library of cookbooks and other resources. We also offer full-length workshops on a number of topics, including Bread Baking, Pie Making, Spices, and more! 

 

Our approach to nutrition education focuses on basic, whole foods as the building blocks for simple, made-from-scratch meals - as enjoyable to cook as they are to eat. On our shelves, patrons find simple recipes for unfamiliar foods like kohlrabi, Swiss chard or goat yogurt. Volunteers help prepare dishes from seasonal produce and low-cost ingredients, then offer samples during pantry hours. These tasty interactions allow for story telling, recipe sharing and insightful discussions about food traditions and healthy living.

 

Weekly Cooking Programs

 

Kids Cook

Join us in the Hub Kitchen to get cooking! Kids can learn basic cooking skills, try out exciting new recipes, and cook with vegetables fresh from the garden. This program is drop-in, and open for all ages. While this program is on pause, we will update this page as we rebuild our in-person education programming.

 

Monthly Workshops

The Hub offers a range of cooking workshops each season. We schedule workshops based on seasonal-availability of ingredients, community members' identified topics of interest, and local partnerships. Our workshops are hands-on, so that participants get to try things out for themselves, experiment together in the kitchen, and enjoy the finished product they helped make.
