Thanks to funding through the 2017 Kitchen Creations Fund offered by Food Banks Canada and Unilever, Interfaith Food Bank is now offering Shop Smart and Collective Kitchen programs, free for community members. 

Shop Smart is a free, two-hour class in Lethbridge focused on learning how to Shop Smart to make your grocery shopping less stressful and more affordable. The class includes label reading, information about core nutrients and family meal planning, and wraps up with a grocery store tour for a hands on demonstration on how to make a shopping trip budget friendly. 
Once participants have completed a Shop Smart session, they are eligible to attend Collective Kitchens programs.
In a Collective Kitchen, participants will plan a menu, grocery list, and prepare 5-seven days of meals together. The Food Bank will provide some of the ingredients, and participants will share the cost of the rest.  Participants must contribute to food costs, but work together to design the menu and with the assistance of the Food Bank Basic Pantry items, the group can select recipes together that the group can afford.  
The Interfaith  Food Bank is accepting registrations for further classes in 2018.  Agencies are also welcome to book classes for their client groups. Participants must register prior to attending.  Upcoming classes in March: Shop Smart: March 13 at 6 p.m.; Collective Kitchen:  March 15th at 6 p.m. More classes are available through 2018. Call 403-320-8779 for more information.
