University of Maine Cooperative Extension Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Programs are free to income-eligible adults with children and who are eligible for programs such as SNAP, WIC, or HeadStart.

Cooking Matters offers hands-on lessons covering meal preparation, grocery shopping, food budgeting, and nutrition.

In Cooking Matters for Parents you will learn to:

  • Prepare and plan healthy meals
  • Use proper knife techniques
  • Save money at the grocery store
  • Keep food safe to eat
  • Be more active
