Nutrition “matters” even more during the pandemic

When families face tough financial circumstances, nutrition is an aspect that is often seen as less than a priority. As families lose work hours, or their jobs altogether, the focus is on making ends meet. For that reason, we are more thrilled than ever to start our Fall Cooking Matters session. A new cohort of newcomers will learn about nutrition, healthy eating, and affordable yet nutritious grocery shopping!

Following strict provincial public health guidelines, in October we started a new session of our Cooking Matters program. We’re proud of our clients for how they’ve adapted to the “new normal” without losing their enthusiasm and curiosity. Welcome back to all our newcomers in the kitchen!

Our classes are currently taking a short break, while the Immigrant Centre is closed to in-person services. However, our Nutrition Services Manager, Briana Henry, is keeping in touch with all clients to support them during our closure, whether they require advice on healthy eating, grocery shopping, or access to emergency food.

Our Cooking Matters program is generously funded by Share our StrengthSecond HarvestWinnipeg Foundation, and Westoba Credit Union.
