Space is available for a series of free cooking classes at Hopelink’s Avondale Park location. The six-week “Cooking Matters” series begins Jan. 24 and continues every Tuesday through Feb. 28. Classes are from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Taught by a volunteer chef and nutritionist, the free classes will help participants learn how to prepare healthy, low-cost meals. Those attending will receive a free nutrition book and recipes, as well as a free bag of groceries at the end of each class.

Priority will be given to low-income households (about $45,000 annual income for a family of four) and current Hopelink clients. Must be 18 years of age or older to sign up for the series.

Classes will be held at Avondale Park, 18435 N.E. 98th Way in Redmond.

For more information or to register, contact Lauren Rieves at (425) 250-3021 or lrieves@hopelink.org.

Classes are made possible through a partnership with Solid Ground.
