This event has already occurred!

 We often forget that we have families and youth who need information regarding healthy food choices, stretching food dollars and gathering information about cooking techniques, stocking a kitchen pantry and making a menu plan. Family Based Services, in partnership with Rachel Tansey, from the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Service in Monmouth County, Therese Hendrickson Family Advocate, and Shatiya Whitley Monmouth County Youth Partnership Coach, will be offering FREE hands-on food education classes from 6- 8:30pm on April 9, May 14, June 11, July 9 and August 13.

These FREE classes are geared toward parents/caregivers with their teens.

Space is limited and everyone must be registered, no walk-ins.
