Best Eastside Community Service

La Cocina Allegre at the Sustainable Food Center

We salute Diane Hernandez and the staff at the "Happy Kitchen" Food School, who provide free cooking classes in English and Spanish to interested Eastside residents. For six weeks at a time, participants learn to prepare delicious, nutritious, and inexpensive meals, and take guided grocery shopping trips to learn how to get the most food for their money. Each class ends with a free bag of groceries so the newly learned recipes can be prepared at home. Kerbey Lane Cafe hosts a graduation dinner at the end of each series. Muy bien trabajo.
