With the right skills, eating healthy can be affordable and delicious. Share your skills and your strength with families living on tight budgets.
More than one-third of families in Pierce County struggle to make ends meet. Even though these families see healthy eating as important, many are unable to prepare nutritious meals most nights of the week. Food skills taught during Colorful Cooking Made Easy cooking classes (based on the Cooking Matters curriculum), like smart shopping, meal planning and healthy cooking, can help make healthy eating a daily reality.
Classes will be held at various locations across Pierce County. One class series is a 6-week commitment (once each week for six weeks).
Six-Week Cooking Course Instructors
Six-Week Cooking Course Assistants help before, during and after classes. Duties may include shopping for food, handing out and collecting class materials, engaging reluctant participants, helping with set up and clean up, taking photos or collecting stories during class to help record the Cooking Matters course experience.

United Way of Pierce County, 1501 Pacific Ave., #400, Tacoma, WA 98402, US
We work from the heart to unite caring people to tackle our community's toughest challenges. We envision a compassionate, vital community where people have the education, resources and opportunities to achieve their potential.
United Way of Pierce County believes by making an early investment in our children and their families, we can help them remove the barriers preventing them from breaking the cycle of poverty. Through Strong Families and Successful Kids, we can create a thriving, connected community. And when our community thrives, we all win.
United Way brings people together to make a real difference in the issues the community cares about. That's why we works in partnership with many individuals and organizations around the county to impact the community. We are members of many collaboratives serving young children, families and our military population. We provide staffing, volunteers, funding and advocacy support to local initiatives and programs aligned with our goal to break the cycle of poverty. We hold annual Community Conversations, listening to the people who live here and together addressing the most pressing issues that our communities care about. We also give out Neighborhood Grants to resident- or community-led groups for projects in their neighborhood or community that help improve the quality of life for its residents in addition to our traditional funding. Why do we do all of this? We believe that change happens when communities work together and we know that together, we can accomplish more than any of us can do alone. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
We'll work with your schedule.
