- Community Cooking Classes, which are frequently offered in collaboration with community organizations, typically focus on preparing easy, well-balanced, plant-based recipes. All recipes are provided so you can make them at home.
- Food For Life Classes usually highlight how a plant-based diet can address specific health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, obesity, brain health, mental health, and reproductive health.
