Education Breakfasts

A good breakfast can kickstart the day, but our nutrition education classes, called “Breakfast at Food Outreach”, help establish good nutrition habits for life. Our Dietitian develops a comprehensive curriculum, and invites experts to speak about various nutrition topics relevant to people living with their disease. Topics might include incorporation of more protein into a balanced diet, food interaction with medication, understanding the food plate (formerly the food pyramid), food budgeting, understanding the impact of secondary illness on overall health, etc. The classes, which are also open to clients’ family members’ guests, provide a unique forum for group education and discussion, and are held on the first Thursday of every month, starting at 10am.

Cooking Classes

Learning how to cook and prepare food properly can equip clients with the tools they need to ensure a nutritious and appetizing meal. We host cooking classes quarterly, with each class lasting three to four weeks, focused on a variety of topics such as food safety and the dangers of food borne illness, knife skills, healthy cooking, meal planning, and reading food labels. At the end of each class, attendees receive the recipe to make the meal at home themselves.
