Nutrition Education Hub
We believe high-impact nutrition and cooking education should be integrated into the lives of all Vermonters. Our Nutrition Education Hub is a resource base for all things Nutrition Education. In our hub you can find Nutrition Education resources from statewide and national partners, as well as Hunger Free Vermont’s the Learning Kitchen, a curriculum created to empower Vermonters of all ages to shop for and prepare healthy meals on a budget.
WE HELP SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS OFFER ESSENTIAL NUTRITION EDUCATION AND COOKING CLASSES ACROSS THE STATE.
The Learning Kitchen
The Learning Kitchen began in 2010 and is available for middle-school youth, young adults, and adults. In a series of six lessons, participants engage in hands-on cooking and nutrition education activities that focus on balancing and planning meals, stretching food dollars to maximize nutrition, shopping strategies and cooking techniques. Classes are taught by area chefs and trained nutrition educators.
As of 2019, we will no longer be directly providing funding to host sites. However, you can find an extensive list of grants and funding opportunities here. If you need specialized help in identifying funding, we’d be happy to assist you further.
