Eating well on a budget can be a challenge.  High calorie, fast foods are often cheap and readily available.  Our goal is to provide families with the knowledge and skills to stretch food budgets further while eating food that tastes good and is good for you.
Our nutrition program is going virtual!

Want to improve your cooking skills, learn new recipes or stretch your dollars at the supermarket? We'll show you how! We hold the class virtually  - you take the class from where you are via the Zoom platform.  For questions contact our dietitian Maria Delis at or 708 386-1124 x1110.

Sign up for Cooking Classes.

We often partner with area non profits such as The Collaboration for Early Childhood or Easter Seals to provide nutrition education and cooking instruction. It's part of our mission to empower families to cook with nutritious foods on a limited budget. For more information about partnership opportunities, contact Maria Delis, RD LDN at or 708 386-1324 x1110
