Tasty Tuesdays

The Fort Meade Alliance is cooking up a tasty new initiative. In partnership with Healthy Little Cooks, a nonprofit organization that helps to inspire and educate children, families, companies, and individuals to eat healthy, the FMA will host nutritional cooking classes for Fort Meade families.

While preparing their meal, participants of all ages will learn tangible cooking skills, discover different cuisines and cultures, spend quality family time together and foster sustainable eating habits for the future.

“The family nutritional cooking class will create a new opportunity for the Fort Meade community,” said Col. (Ret) Kenneth McCreedy, FMA Military and Family Committee Chair. “It serves as a chance for families to connect, share a meal and learn more about healthy eating, all of which can speak to areas of need at Fort Meade.”

The pilot class is scheduled for the end of June at the Potomac Place Neighborhood Center at Fort Meade. At no cost to the participants, they will take part in a 90-minute cooking class that will include dinner and their own bag of groceries to take home.

The goal is to offer these family cooking classes on a regular basis at Fort Meade with a variety of themes and cuisines.
