Creative Partnerships: Cooking Matters Classes for Childcare Providers
October 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As experts in early literacy, librarians already know how crucial good nutrition is to overall health and development, but may wonder what the library can do to support healthy food practices among the families and children it serves. By attending this webinar, you’ll learn about a potential partner that can help address that need. Cooking Matters helps families shop for and cook healthy meals on a budget, as part of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. This webinar will focus on the classes Cooking Matters offers for Child Care Providers (both professional and informal), and will discuss what’s involved in offering a class, what the possibilities for partnership are, and consider ways that librarians’ unique areas of expertise can support and expand on the information provided during class. Specific attention will be paid to current opportunities for libraries that are part of Growing Readers Together (GRT), an early literacy program of the Colorado State Library, although partnerships with Cooking Matters are open to any library.
