CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – You may not learn the knife skills required to make you a formidable contender in a culinary contest, but you will learn simple, applicable tips to help you create healthy, budget-friendly meals at Summit Health’s upcoming free community cooking demonstrations.
The cooking demonstrations will be led by Chambersburg Hospital Executive Chef Emilie Brossene and Director of Food and Nutrition and Registered Dietitian Julie Charnosky in the Lecture Center of Chambersburg Hospital, 112 N. Seventh St., starting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, and Tuesday, March 15.
They are offered as part of Summit Health’s month-long “Awaken Your Taste Buds” campaign to celebrate the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ National Nutrition Month® initiative.
Demonstrations will be based on recipes found in the cookbook Good and Cheap: Eat Well on Just $4/Day. The book was written on the premise that a person who receives $4 per day from the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) could use it as a guide to craft healthy meals.
“Cooking nourishing meals on a budget isn’t always easy, but it’s not impossible,” said Julie Charnosky. “These free cooking demonstrations will equip community members with practical information they can use to make healthful, inexpensive meals part of their daily routines.”
She said the demonstrations will serve up wholesome meal ideas that will appeal to anyone – fixed income or not.
