UK Extension Cooking Class Teaches Low-income Families About Nutrition

In La Grange, Kentucky, Christine Duncan has hosted cooking classes for low-income families to help improve their daily nutrition. In conjunction with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, Duncan, who herself is Oldham County’s agent for family and consumer sciences with UK Extension, believes these classes help to give people “nutritious, seasonal recipes to use when they receive their food.” Erica Price from the Metro United Way believes that “extension is teaching people how to stretch their food dollars. We really want to help empower people to grow their own food and provide nutritious food for their kids.” All attendees to Duncan’s class, through a grant made possible by Metro United Way, are provided with cooking accessories and “a few nicer items for a random drawing.” Learn more about what the University of Kentucky and Christine Duncan are doing for Kentucky families here:
