This October and November, SNAP-Ed Educators Leticia Rodriguez and Conchita Paez-Sievert partnered with Hy-Vee to hold a Cooking Matters™ for Teens class with the Middle Level Alternative Program students from the Worthington Alternative Learning Center.
During the six week course, students traveled to Hy-Vee to learn from a chef and nutrition educators how to make a recipe. Then, they applied their learning, making the recipes themselves — and, of course, eating them.
Lessons focused on making healthy meals and practicing safe cooking.

In addition to preparing their own meal during the school day, students received a grocery bag with ingredients for the day's recipe to bring home and make the meal for their family.
