Feel Good Friday - Three Squares

Happy New Year! 

A lot of people make New Year's resolutions about food and thinking about that made me hungry! That's why today's Feel Good Friday focuses on a group in the San Francisco Bay Area that provides nutrition education and improved access to healthy food in low-income communities. 

Introducing Three Squares.  Their tag line is "Changing the food system, three squares at a time." and that's exactly what they do with their Cooking Matters program.

Cooking Matters is a free, six-week long series of cooking and nutrition classes for low-income families.  Classes are taught by volunteer culinary and nutrition instructions working in teams - perhaps even you!

If your cooking skills are like mine and you'd be better off taking a class rather than teaching it, there are other ways to support this organization.  My plan is to attend their first ever Food and Farm Film Fest, happening March 29-31, 2013 at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, California. This unique film festival will pair local chefs with new films to create a delicious feast for the eyes and mouth. 

See you there!
