Urban Pantry's community kitchens program - "Cooking UP" - launched last week with its first 6-week series of food skills workshops. The classes are focused on cooking and preparing affordable meals using fresh fruits and vegetables commonly found in the Good Food Box.
It was a great first class with a total of thirteen participants! We made easy bread, vegetable soup stock, and watermelon salsa, which was fresh and delicious! (Recipes will be posted on our website soon).
Thank you to Urban Pantry's Community Kitchen Coordinator, Kyra Keckes, for organizing a great workshop. Thanks to Lorna and team at Barrie Community Health Centre for partnering with Urban Pantry to offer regular food skills classes in Barrie.
