Full Circle Food Pantry Offering Free Virtual Cooking Classes

Join Aryn Blumenberg, the Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry Cooking Matters intern, in a virtual cooking class at 6:15-7:15 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 20, as they cook Tuna and Tomato Spaghetti! The class will host up to 14 participants; sign up here.

Cooking Matters is a national program that works on teaching nutrition, cooking skills and budgeting while still accessing and using nutritious foods. All classes are currently virtual this semester and run periodically, typically in the evenings. All ingredients and recipes are provided to participants. Requirements for the class are a kitchen with basic cooking equipment and a good enough internet connection to log in to Zoom to join in and cook along! We do our best to modify recipes to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies.

The Full Circle Food Pantry is a resource on the U of A campus that provides a three-day supply of groceries and personal care items anyone with a U of A or UAMS ID. The pantry strives to serve clients with balanced meals through non-perishables and fresh produce and is dedicated to nourishing bodies, empowering minds and creating a community of compassion.

If you have any questions about this class OR would like to be put on an email list for future classes, please reach out to the Cooking Matters Intern, Aryn Blumenberg, at [email protected]
