Cooking Healthy, Eating Well (CHEW)
CHEW Cooking Classes
The CHEW (Cooking Healthy, Eating Well) classes are hands-on cooking workshops where students can gain the confidence and skills needed to cook at home. Our goal is to teach students how to prepare quick and easy meals using seasonal, low-cost ingredients.
CHEW classes emphasize nutritious and culturally diverse recipes and make cooking approachable and fun for all. Classes are woven with nutrition education and are catered to a college student’s time, budget, cooking equipment, and schedule. Students who have taken our classes have reported:
- Increased nutrition and cooking knowledge
- More confidence in measuring ingredients, knife skills, following a recipe, cooking in a short amount of time, and cooking on a limited budget
- Higher than average intake of fruits and vegetables compared to the larger campus population
