Baptist Health Community Outreach Hosts Free Cooking Classes

Baptist Health Community Outreach holds a variety of monthly classes to help central Arkansas residents make easy and delicious meals at home that won’t break the bank or health goals.

The Cooking with Community Outreach classes are taught by Baptist Health registered dietitian Samantha Stadter and are designed to help participants gain confidence in the kitchen. During each class, students will prepare, cook, and taste different dishes using a variety of ingredients. Topics include nutrition benefits, ingredient selection, money-saving tips, and more.

Classes are held every second Thursday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Baptist Health Community Outreach, 10117 Kanis Road in Little Rock:

  • Thursday, April 11: Gallo Pinto (Costa Rican rice and beans)
  • Thursday, May 9: Mediterranean turkey burgers and cucumber salad
  • Thursday, June 13: Chicken tacos with homemade salsa

Each student will leave class with a satisfied stomach, written recipes, and tips. Best of all, the Community Outreach staff will handle kitchen clean up.
