Food Literacy Workshop | Hastings Prince Edward Public Health

Food Literacy Workshop

Registration is required.
Friday, November 23, 2018 - 9:00 am to 2:00 pm

This FREE five hour Workshop is open to anyone who wishes to run a cooking class or food literacy program of their own. Whether you are working with the public, students, or clients through an organization, you may benefit from attending this workshop.

Being food literate means having the knowledge, skills, and behaviours needed for every day healthy eating.

The Food Literacy Workshop will provide you with the skills, resources, and knowledge you need to run your own cooking class or food literacy program.

At the Food Literacy Workshop you will learn about the classes you can offer, the equipment and facilities you will need, food safety, and knife safety. There is also a hands-on cooking component so that you can experience what it’s like to attend one of our cooking classes. Bonus: you get to eat what you cook, meaning that lunch is included!

After completing this training you will be able to run any of HPEPH’s cooking programs: Food for Thought (for children ages 9-12 years), Cooking with the Basic Shelf (for adults 18 and older), or Cooking with Kids (for parents and their children ages 6-8 years).  You can also pick and choose from our resources to create lessons that will best fit the needs of the people with whom you are working. .
