Student Nutrition Association To Offer Free Healthy Cooking Event

It’s National Nutrition Month, and Penn State’s Student Nutrition Association wants you to have some healthy food — for free.

The healthy cooking demonstration is set for 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 31 in room 107 of the Henderson Building food lab. The event aligns with this year’s National Nutrition Month theme — Savor the Flavor of Eating Right — by teaching students how to prepare a healthy meal on a budget.

The event is focused on quick, easy meals and is designed for students who hope to sharpen their nonexistent skills in the kitchen. The class is free, but students are asked to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the State College food bank.

The Student Nutrition Association will teach students how to cook a four-course meal beginning with an appetizer made of hummus, fresh vegetables, and crackers. Students participating in the class will also learn how to make their own salad dressing, followed by the main course, which will be comprised of tilapia with red quinoa. The dessert will be chickpea chocolate cookies.

Space is limited to 36 students due to the size of the food lab. To reserve your spot in advance, please email Samantha Twaroski.
