This nine lesson curriculum was developed by Colorado State University Extension. The series is available to people on a limited income and helps them gain knowledge to feed themselves and their family healthy, affordable, and tasty food.

Topics include:

  • Healthy eating and cooking for less
  • Saving money at the grocery store
  • Being active
  • Cooking
  • Planning meals

Participants learn new recipes, are physically active at each lesson, and receive incentives such as a cookbook, kitchen utensils, and a stretch band.

Salishan Gardens residents started a walking club to keep exercising after our ESBA series was complete! (above)

Each lesson includes hands-on cooking and demonstrations! Participants get to taste the foods they help prepare in class.
