Chatham-Kent Food Skills Network set to launch


Are you looking for information on how to learn to cook?

Have you wanted to teach others how to cook but don’t feel comfortable?

Would you be interested in training to teach others to cook?

Are you looking for resources that can help you with your cooking program such as recipes, videos and handouts?

The Chatham-Kent Food Policy Council is proud to present their newest initiative – The Chatham-Kent Food Skills Network.

The vision of the Food Skills Networks is “Reconnecting people with food to support a healthier Chatham-Kent”, while their mission is “To assist individuals and organizations within Chatham-Kent to develop food skills by providing training, tools, resources and networking”.

The CK Food Skills Network plans to do this by providing opportunities to network, increase training available in the community for individuals and organizations who would like to deliver food skills, to develop programs that meet the needs of our community and finally share and develop resources to support food skills programming in Chatham-Kent.

On the Food Skills Network page of the CK Food Policy Council website you will find:

– Programs, Workshops, and events within the community

– Recipes that are easy to use

– Resources to support food skills teaching

– Videos to learn how to do various cooking skills

– Links to programs that can be used with different community groups.

People are invited to join the group to learn more about our new initiative, taste test some recipes and explore the resources on the updated website.

Date: Monday April 3rd, 2017
Time: 10:00 am
Location: Salvation Army Family Services Office, 19 Raleigh Street, Chatham

Also watch for upcoming dates at all the libraries in Chatham-Kent.

They will be there showcasing the website, resources and will have taste testing for people to enjoy.
