At the YMCA we create opportunities for the development of mind, body and soul. Food and nutrition are key to helping individuals attain optimal health throughout life. Eating a balanced diet improves a person's overall health, well-being and happiness. Our programs help you learn how to make sustainable food choices and learn healthy preparation and eating habits in our functional kitchen facilities.

Our kitchen programs are available at the Northside Community Centre in Red Deer and the YMCA Family Resource Centre in Edmonton.
