For many students, college is the first time that providing daily meals for themselves has been a concern. Food, Nutrition, and Basic Skills is a workshop series aimed at helping students shop and budget for food sustainably, as well as cook healthy meals. Workshops and food demonstrations focus on kitchen skills, nutrition facts, sustainable food supplies, shopping on a budget and much more!
