YMCA Welcome Village


Join a group that meets once a week to cook for yourself or your family. The group chooses the menu, the facilitator purchases the food and the group creates the meals as a team. Members are asked to bring their own take away containers in order to take the meals home. The facilitator teaches basic nutrition throughout the class as well as basic food preparation skills including food safety. Groups prepare 2–3 meals per session and portions can be ordered at a cost of $2-$3 each.
