Fresh Chef Experience Cooking Classes supports Dare to Care Food Bank and our Community by teaching Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters/No Kid Hungry

As part of the No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger in America, Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters teaches participants to stretch their food budgets and shop smarter, use nutrition information to make healthier choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.
