For the past two years, Heritage has partnered with Inter Parish Ministry (IPM) to offer free cooking classes for those in need. Clients leave feeling empowered to prepare the recipes on their own and make small changes to improve their health. These classes are designed for those in need to gain the basic cooking skills that can enable them to make healthier and more economical food choices. As an IPM client; they receive the recipes, a meal, a $25 Kroger gift card and will leave with many of the ingredients so they can prepare the recipes at home. The meal that we serve after each class is a truly a time of radical hospitality.
Members and friends of Heritage will be donating hours of preparation time to produce the classes. Over 35 hours of people power are needed to produce one class. We CELEBRATE LIFE through the bounty of the earth, we CREATE COMMUNITY with the class and especially the meal afterward and we SEEK JUSTICE by empowering those in need to make better choices with their money and their meals.
