CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Any way you cut it, eating nutritiously can really affect your wallet – especially if you’re on a budget. It doesn’t have to be out of reach, though, if you know how to stretch your dollars and “Take Your Food Further.”

An initiative of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, March is National Nutrition Month®.

As part of its efforts for the month, Summit Health on Wednesday night offered a free hands-on “Cooking & Conversation” class meant to guide locals on how to better manage their food resources to cut back on food waste and save money.

An additional session will be held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, in the Chambersburg Hospital Lecture Center, 112 N. Seventh St.

“We wanted to offer these classes because we know people are busy and often, on a budget,” said Director of Community Services Ann Spottswood. “With a little planning, people can make their dollars stretch and take their food further by incorporating ingredients into multiple recipes.”

Ingredients and cooking utensils are supplied for the dishes, Chicken Provençal with spaghetti squash and harvest chicken salad.

Class size is limited and registration is required. For more information or to register, click here.
