The Happy Kitchen / La Cocina Alegre®  — cooking classes and nutrition education — teaches participants the importance and benefits of eating healthy foods and instructs them in how to cook nutritious, low-cost meals using fresh, locally-sourced foods. The long-term goals for participants are to learn good nutrition habits using local and seasonal produce while having fun, and to inspire them to make lifestyle changes that will impact participants’ and their families’ overall health.

BWC DOES NOT ACCEPT PRE-REGISTRATIONS OR RESERVATIONS FOR CLASSES. PARTICIPANTS MUST SHOW UP TO EITHER THE FIRST AND/OR SECOND CLASS IN A SERIES TO REGISTER.
