Classes & Food Demos

We offer many opportunities for our community members to learn about a variety of topics. One of these is nutrition and healthy eating. We conduct grocery store tours with a nutritionist at our local IGA, offer our Women's Empowerment Series, and do cooking demonstrations on Saturday distributions. We also engage community members in topics related to gardening—Check out our Gardening Workshops and Build-A-Garden page.



OCS offers Nutrition and Cooking Matters classes. The classes are led by the OSU Extension Lorain County SNAP-Ed. Instructors provide education, new recipes and cooking techniques.

grocery store tours

grocery store tours

We partner with our local IGA to offer tours to the public. Led by nutritionists, the tours are an opportunity to learn which store items are healthy options, share fresh cooking ideas, and understand how to use unfamiliar ingredients.


Food Demonstrations

We have healthy food demonstrations and food tastings once a week, and have a food demonstration during each of our big Saturday Distributions, often using produce and ingredients being distributed that day.
