It is our hope that these programs will help us offer community members a hand UP, and not just a hand-out.

In 2005, we were pleased to announce the addition of The Interfaith Chinook Country Kitchen (TICCK), a program formed through a unique partnership with Family Centre.
In addition to these classes, TICCK staff provide information on nutrition, meal ideas, and parenting tips as requested.
We also provide options to use our resources at your own facility through our “On The Go” program, with mobile totes, food support, and training available on how to facilitate your own kitchen programs. For more information on the On the Go program please contact the Kitchen Coordinator at 403-320-8138.
This community kitchen program provides FREE cooking sessions that are intended to teach healthy eating on a limited budget. Our facilitators will provide all the ingredients and tools needed to prepare each week’s recipes. An early childhood educator provides activities for children while parents cook in the kitchen. Guided classes are offered Monday and Tuesday afternoons, 1-3pm, and Wednesday and Friday mornings, 930-1130 am. Registration is required by calling 403-320-8138.
This fun, interactive program runs over 4 Friday afternoons. Children and youth will gain confidence and independence in the kitchen while preparing healthy meals and snacks. We provide food and kitchen safety education, with an emphasis on how to read recipes and use a variety of tools and cooking methods.
Classes are separated into age groups and registration is required through the Family Centre website.
This hands on program allows preschoolers (3-6) and their caregivers to work together to create delicious snacks as well as nurture fledgling kitchen skills and encourage an interest in healthy nutrition. This program is offered twice each month, September through June.
