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.
