Cooking, Healthy Eating, and Food Strategies (C.H.E.F.S.)
C.H.E.F.S. cooking classes focus on the preparation of whole, plant-based foods while explaining the evidence that supports their cancer fighting properties. Attendees will gain knowledge, confidence, and food skills through evidence based lectures and cooking demonstrations. Participants also enjoy a generous sampling of all food prepared, and leave the class with a detailed shopping list to prepare these foods at home.
C.H.E.F.S. is offered several times per year in collaboration with Jeanne Petrucci, MS and Living Plate LLC.
Various topics are covered throughout the year such as herbs and spices, is chocolate a healthy treat, and more! Check out our Program Calendar for details on these special programs.
Stepping Stone Clubhouse, “Mini Chefs”
Join us in the CSCCNJ kitchen with Registered Dietitians who will teach the little chefs some healthy after school snacks they can make at home. Parents are encouraged to enjoy watching the kids do all the work and connect with other adults who are impacted by cancer.
