The CHIRS cooking club participants create and enjoy a meal together. Participants have the opportunity to learn kitchen safety
and learn food preparation skills as they follow a recipe in a social setting. The Monday group prepares dinner together, and the
Friday group prepares lunch. Menus for both groups are prepared in collaboration with participants, and are usually three course
meals so that everyone has the opportunity to participate in the creation of at least one course. A skills assessment for kitchen/
cooking skills is required prior to joining.
