nutrition education, food preparation, and basic living skills. Super Cupboards
offer a learning environment where participants can feel acceptance and
Each 5 week program consists of a series of lessons and
activities on various topics to help participants feed their families on a
limited budget. Emphasis is placed on learning how to prepare low-cost, quick
meals, developing new cooking and food safety skills and trying new nutritious
foods. Participants are then able to take home the supplies to prepare the
meals at home for their families.
