Let’s Cook! Classes

Since 2012 Elijah’s Promise has offered “Let’s Cook!”. This program educates the greater New Brunswick Community in how to cook healthy meals for themselves and their families on a budget. our “Let’s Cook!” program is a multi-class instructional cooking series offered several times throughout the year.

Since launching the program over 10 years ago, we have run “Let’s Cook!” at our culinary training kitchen, fitness and wellness centers, in partnership with local schools, in our community garden, and with community partners. Workshops focus on diet & health; including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, heart disease, and other health issues linked to poor diet. With these sessions we offer hands-on family classes for ages 6+ and tastings for participants. With the focus on how to prepare healthy meals using food boxes from the local food pantries and funding from the NJ SNAP program.

We are excited to offer our “Let’s Cook” program in-person once again with dates in July & August of 2023. Please know these classes are limited and participants must register. To learn more or to register please visit www.elijahspromise.org/events.

If you are unable to attend the in-person classes, please know that Elijah’s Promise offers a Let’s Cook! series of bilingual videos, (see links below). We are hoping everyone can learn to better navigate their kitchen and health. Enjoy our virtual “Let’s Cook!” classes!
