Nutrition/Cooking
Good nutrition practices and education are incorporated in many health services provided by Clear Creek Public and Environmental Health--from maternal/child programs, to cardiovascular risk screenings to cooking classes.

Cooking classes are coordinated by the Public Health Department through sponsorship grants from Cooking Matters.Cooking Matters is a groundbreaking nutrition education program funded through state and federal dollars that assists families to help themselves by teaching them how to prepare healthy low-cost meals. Professional chefs and nutritionists volunteer their time and expertise to lead hands-on courses that instruct adults, teens, and kids living in low-income families, how to get the most nutrition out of a limited budget.

These classes are offered free in the county annually in various locations, dates and times depending upon facility and staff availability.  Cirriculums include adult, youth, family and school programs.  Classes are generally two hours in length and meet once a week for six weeks. Pre-registration is necessary and pre-qualification questions may be asked.

If you would like to be on an interest list for the next available cooking class scheduled in the summer of 2013, please call 303-478-1795.
