    18 Reasons, a food education non-profit, wants to empower you with the confidence and creativity needed to buy, cook, and eat good food every day. Cooking Matters is a six-week course in cooking and nutrition, developed by Share our Strength. Led by a chef, a nutritionist, and other knowledgeable staff, we will guide you through the ins and outs of cooking delicious, healthy foods on a budget. Eating fresh and healthy doesn't have to break your bank and 18 Reasons will show you how to stretch your grocery dollar without sacrificing flavor or your health. Registration for the entire six-week course is free, with a required $30 deposit due prior to the first class and returned upon attendance at a minimum of 4 classes. Attending less than 4 classes will result in forfeiture of deposit. Basic kitchen confidence is prerequisite. Program includes course materials, in-class recipe ingredients, and take-home groceries every week for you to play with at home. Note that class 5 will take place off-site and you will be responsible for transportation to the alternate location (Safeway at 2020 Market St.). Please also be advised that you will need to arrive one hour early for both the first and last classes to accommodate intake and evaluation procedures. Spots in this fun and educational cooking class series are limited, so secure your participation by contacting Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at or 415-694-7316 to register. Deadline to register is Monday, August 5th.

  • Knitting


    Aug 29

    Every week, our knitters gather to share their purls of wisdom and get in the loop on each other’s latest project, and usually end up in stitches spinning yarns. Whether you knit for pleasure, distraction or just practical economics, or you’ve never done it before and want to give it a try, there’s always room for another loom. Learn, refine, or teach a skill that makes your gift-giving budget lighter weight or support a student-led altruistic project like knitting chemo caps, beanies for babies, lap blankets or other creative applications.

    BLAZE with Glitter - Life Coaching with S.E.W. Coaching

    BLAZE with Glitter - Life Coaching with S.E.W. Coaching
    Saturday, August 17, 24, & 31, 10 a.m. -12:00 p.m.

    Get a taste for what coaching can do for your life via this short series of three workshops:
    Own Your Glitter: Responsibility for time/priorities, ownership of health and well-being, responsibility for basic needs
    I Thought I Knew Me: Self-love, self-worth/validation, self-care
    Power Plunge: Physical body, mental/emotional, spirit/soul

    Sara Waggle of S.E.W. Coaching is a Leadership Coach for trail blazers--those who have grand ideas and feel stuck in creating them, supporting those who want to bring their idea to life. She is a trained ontological coach, meaning that she coaches not only one’s tangible goals, but how one is going about those goals. Her work focuses on self-love, awareness, acceptance, and care as the foundation for living the life one desires. This workshop series is focused on ownership--looking at your responsibility and ownership of time/priorities, health/well being, and energy.
    We will interact in a cozy intimate setting to empower each other in taking ownership of our lives…Owning Your Glitter. Each session will have a specific topic and while attendance to all 3 is not mandatory, there will be overlap in all 3. There will be games and prizes in each session and light refreshments will be provided. Join us for blazing fun in Owning Your Glitter!

    Sara is generously offering her services as a professional coach for this introductory series on a donation-basis.
