Welcome! Keep reading to learn about Oregon Food Bank's free gardening and nutrition education classes open to the public.
Seed to Supper,
a program of Oregon Food Bank and Oregon State University Extension Service, is a 5-session beginning vegetable gardening course for adults gardening on a budget. Taught inside during the cool season, Seed to Supper gives new gardeners the knowledge and confidence to grow a portion of their own food. In this interactive class, there are no grades and no pressure--participants learn from trained garden educators and from each other.
a program of Share Our Strength and Oregon Food Bank, is a 6-week course focused on learning to shop and cook on a budget. Taught in a hands-on kitchen environment where everyone cooks and learns together, it is designed for participants who are cooking and shopping for their households. The course includes a grocery store field trip to practice budget-savvy shopping tips. Classes are two hours each and are taught by trained volunteer educators.
