UT Extension of Sevier County recently graduated 14 individuals in its Cooking Matters Course.
This six-week program was developed through a Share Our Strength grant, which was piloted in Sevier County. Participants learned and displayed skills in food preparation, healthy meal planning and food budgeting/shopping. They also competed in a $10 grocery store challenge at Food City, as well as successfully prepared healthy meals for their families.
The course was implemented by UT Extension and made possible through funding from the Tennessee Department of Human Services, USDA and UT Extension. Brandi Taylor instructed the course with assistance from Meg Curtis and Linda Hyder of UT Extension.
