Healthy Cooking on a Budget Workshop at KLDCS

February 28, 2019

KLDCS Healthy Eating 1.jpgOn February 28th, a group of graduating KLDCS students took part in a workshop on how to prepare healthy meals on a budget while following Canada's new food guide. 

This was a new initiative from the school's Student Success team and was sponsored and delivered by the local Temiskaming Health Unit's dietician and our school nurse. Over 25 students participated, made a healthy low-cost lunch and walked away with a recipe book made just for them. 

This is part of a series of workshops facilitated by KLDCS to promote student independence and life skills as they head off on their own into post-secondary.  Our next workshop will focus on budgeting and will be delivered by an accountant from the community.
