Tatura Men’s Shed ‘Men in the Kitchen’ project will conduct an eight-week ‘Learn to Cook’ program specifically aimed at men who may have lost a partner or are living on their own.January 21, 2014 2:15pm
Spokesperson Alex Carter said the course would run on Wednesdays (10 am to 2 pm), starting on February 12, finishing on April 2.
He said the course would not only cover learning how to cook, but also how to budget, spend less on food, try new recipes and make new friends.
The cost is $5/session and the program is for men aged 65 and over.
Mr Carter said participants would work together to complete two recipes each session.
‘‘The recipes prepared are meals that are nutritious and can be prepared on a low budget, which are then distributed to participants who can either sit down and have their meals or take them home for later,’’ he said.
The Men in the Kitchen program is supported by Australian Men’s Shed Association and Greater Shepparton City Council and the Community Kitchen Program, which is funded by the Healthy Communities Initiative.
The Community Kitchen Program will be presented by GSCC healthy communities project officer Jaala Freer.
