Do you want to learn how to cook delicious, budget-friendly recipes? To make a new group of supportive friends? To gain confidence in the kitchen and beyond? It's all possible with support from Community Action's FEAST Wellness Program!
Each FEAST group includes 12 weeks of group meetings, plus individual support. At each meeting, participants learn how to make a new recipe and participate in a discussion group. Every week, participants will leave with new skills and a recipe to take home.
There are many benefits to participating in FEAST. Just some include:
- Learning new skills
- Making new friends
- Discovering healthy, budget-friendly recipes your whole family will enjoy!
FEAST stands for Food, Education, Access, and Support, Together. The group wellness program provides support on three levels:
- Education: Nutrition discussions, recipe and cooking demonstrations to make healthy eating satisfying, affordable, and delicious.
- Access: Free access to fresh, whole foods through every class.
- Support: A safe space to explore current eating habits and receive group support to create healthier new beginnings with food.
Meetings will occur via Zoom until further notice. Participants may borrow devices to connect if needed (limited number available).
The FEAST program model was piloted in Los Angeles, California, with a mission to “promote health and wellness in communities through the power of healthy foods and human connection.” It has since expanded to multiple cities and states across the country. Learn more here.
