Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters
Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters® empowers families with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals. It brings together local culinary and nutrition experts and volunteers to lead hands-on courses that give participants the confidence and know-how to select tasty and low-cost ingredients, stretch them across multiple meals, and use healthy cooking techniques and recipes that help them provide the best nourishment possible to their families.
Since 1993, Cooking Matters has grown to serve more than 15,000 families each year across the country, helping them learn how to eat better on a budget. Today, more than 86% of Cooking Matters participants graduate, taking with them improved nutrition practices, eating habits, and food budgeting skills. The ConAgra Foods® Foundation and Walmart are national sponsors of Cooking Matters. Learn more at CookingMatters.org
