Community Nutrition Classes
Knowing how to make the most of the food that’s available is an important part of the food security equation. MFC offers nutrition classes at local schools and community centers that use fun, hands-on methods for teaching nutrition, food identification, purchasing and preparation.
For more information or to host or sign up for a class, please contact Jordyn at GoodEats@mountainfamilycenter.org or Bailey at Bailey@mountainfamilycenter.org.
