Families who want to learn new dishes in the midst of getting into the back-to-school routine can attend a cooking demonstration.

Back to School Nutrition and Family Meals will be at 6 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Clark-Pleasant branch of the library, 530 Tracy Road, Whiteland.

Stacey Faith, Purdue Extension educator, will do a cooking demonstration.

Erin Cataldi, teen and adult services librarian, tells you what you need to know about the event.

How did you get the idea for the event?

We like to have a variety of different cooking classes. I contacted Faith about doing some sort of cooking class. I asked her what we could do, and she said we haven’t done a nutrition class in awhile.

Why do you offer cooking classes?

We try to get a variety of different education classes, and sometimes people just don’t know about the latest things. We are happy to provide that kind of service. Sometimes what you hear in the news or read in cookbooks can be really daunting.

How much does it cost?


Who can attend?

It is geared toward families, but, really anyone. It is a live cooking class; she brings all the ingredients. It is a live demo, and it is very interactive.
