Cooking Matters Satellite Programming

aeisenberg0907

Did you know that Cooking Matters takes place not only in Southeast Michigan, but throughout the entire state? Yes, even the U.P.!

Since Cooking Matters partnered with Gleaners in 1995, the program has continued to expand.  In order to keep up with the demand for Cooking Matters, it became necessary to create satellites: offices throughout Michigan that coordinate classes within their communities.  With the help of our dedicated CM staff (cough, cough--Sarah Mills) and our satellite partners, our capacity for outreach has grown like wildfire over the past two years.

Here is an overview of who our satellites are and how much they have accomplished:

1.  Manistee Community Kitchen

  • 16 classes completed
  • 164 graduates

2. SEEDS

  • 7 classes completed
  • 63 graduates

3. Michigan Nutrition Network Partners

4. Michigan State University Extension

  • Includes 12 districts that, together, extend Cooking Mattersprogramming throughout the entire state!
  • 54 classes completed
  • 540 total graduates

5.  Henry Ford Health System Generation with Promise

  • 50 classes completed
  • 504 total graduates

Together, Cooking Matters Satellites throughout the state have completed over 139 classes and graduated over 1400 participants!
