Cooking Matters Class Welcomes Congressman

By Hannah Jastram, Communications Associate
 
Last month, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-6) visited a Cooking Matters® Minnesota class at Big Lake Food Shelf in Big Lake, Minnesota.



He joined SNAP-Ed educator Brandy Buro, Cooking Matters volunteers, and the class participants in making oatmeal chunk cookies with healthy substitutions.


"As the father of seven, I understand how important it is to teach children healthy habits early on," Congressman Emmer wrote after the event in his Aug 26 newsletter, "and I am so thankful for our community’s organizations and businesses that strive to make this happen. "
