In Church Health's Community Culinary Medicine Cooking classes, you'll learn how to make meals that are as nutritious as they are delicious! Our curriculum is based on the nine principles of the Mediterranean Diet.

Each class includes:
* Simple, healthful concepts you can practice in your own kitchen.
* Strategies for meal planning and shopping on a budget.
* Helpful information on how different foods and cooking techniques can help you eat well, get healthy and stay healthy!

Best of all, at the end of each class, we get to eat all the delicious dishes we cook! More information and registration available here

This class series is part of a health assessment conducted by Church Health. This assessment measures the impact of the classes on the participant's health over the course of a year. Participants will check in with the health assessment team before, 3, 6, and 12 months after the class series has completed. Each health check in will take no more than 1 hour to complete and will be scheduled for Saturday mornings. This will include a brief survey, height, weight, waist, blood pressure, and A1C measurement. You will receive a health card at each health check in to show your progress. Participation in the health assessment is required to attend the class. 

Classes are each Thursday, Jan. 25 through March 1, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. in Church Health's Teaching Kitchen at Crosstown Concourse. Enter the Crosstown West Atrium and the Kitchen will be on your right. All parking at Crosstown Concourse is free. 

Each class series includes six sessions, and each session lasts two hours. Participants must be age 16 and up; children are not permitted in the kitchen during class. We ask that you commit to the series in its entirety, attending at least 75% of the scheduled sessions. 

Classes are pay-what-you-can. All donations support the clinical and wellness services of Church Health, a not-for-profit organization that provides affordable healthcare to working uninsured people and their families in Shelby County.
