Cooking Well: Teaching Kitchen
Your gift to the Cooking Well Teaching Kitchen will help our students and team of dietitians provide whole, real food nutrition education through hands-on meal preparation and cooking classes.
The UC Berkeley Student Nutrition Advocacy Club (SNAC) in partnership with Recreational Sports Department is raising money to supply a teaching kitchen in the Recreational Sports Facility. Our goal is to help students learn to cook and eat healthy food on a budget.
Basic needs has become a critical issue on campus with approximately 39% of undergraduates and 23% of graduate students experiencing some form of food insecurity. In 2016-17, the Food Pantry—UC Berkeley’s emergency relief food supply program—served over 10,000 visits by students who are food insecure. Our goal is to help those students along with all students better understand how to create healthy, nutritious, and tasty meals on a limited budget.
Your generous gifts will help us purchase the needed equipment (cookware, bakeware, appliances, tools, and utensils) for our classes. Every $400 raised will outfit one cooking station that can teach 2-3 students how to cook a healthy meal!
Every dollar counts! Your generosity will directly impact hundreds of students and help them develop nutrition habits that lead to a healthy life today and for years to come!
