HEALTHY EATING ON A BUDGET
Convivium has a deep commitment to helping all people experience and enjoy fresh food. To us, improving life through food includes providing tools and education about healthy food choices to children and adults who struggle with food access.
Good & Cheap is a cooking class based on the Leanne Brown's cookbook titled: Good & Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a day. The book was written as part of Ms. Brown’s PhD thesis and includes thoughtful, healthy, vegetable-heavy recipes that can be prepared for $4 per day – the amount per day that you receive if you qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
The four week cooking class uses recipes from this cookbook for hands-on learning in our training kitchen - where participants can make and enjoy different meals together each week. It also covers topics including: tips for stocking your pantry, how to meal plan and prep on a budget, strategies for shopping at the grocery store, and basic knife skills.
