Teens wanting a fun and informational activity during spring break are being invited to sign up for the Cooking Matters for Teens class, running from Monday, March 25, through Friday, March 29, at Beacon Crest Apartments in Lincoln City.

From 1 to 3 pm each day, kids aged 12 to 17 will get hands-on experience in the kitchen, preparing two recipes per day and enjoying a family-style meal together during each class.

Topics will include understanding nutrition information and nutrition labels, how to read and follow recipes, knife safety and meal planning.

As an additional incentive for teens to attend, each student will receive a Cooking Matters curriculum manual with kid-friendly recipes. They also can take home groceries each week to practice the recipe again at home with their family.

Registration is required. For information and to register contact Sommer McLeish, Samaritan Healthier Communities coordinator, at smcleish@samhealth.org or 541-557-6215.
