Must be 55 or older to register


Common Ground is partnering with OSF Healthcare to offer a free cooking class series for seniors over 55!


Smart Meals is a program designed to provide awareness and education on buying affordable, healthy foods that can be easily prepared at home. OSF dieticians have created Smart Meal Kits with shelf-stable ingredients that can be cooked into a full meal, or supplemented with additional ingredients. Each kit also includes a recipe card, a shopping list, and other educational materials. Each Smart Meal recipe is uniquely created by a registered OSF dietitian. All meals are high in fiber and low in fat and sodium.


Each cooking class will feature one Smart Meal kit, as well as fresh additions and recipes using local and organic food from Common Ground Food Co-op. At the end of the class, students will receive an additional Smart Meals kit to take home with them!


Join us for the first class in the series, Tex-Mex Tostadas with Chips & Guacamole!

Nutritional Focus - Fiber & Protein

This class's Smart Meals kit features a simple tostada with tomatoes, green chilies, sweet corn, bell peppers, chicken breast, and refried beans. Additional fresh options provided by Common Ground Food Co-op include romaine lettuce, avocado, cheese, cilantro, limes, red onion, and sour cream. Students will also learn how to make their own fresh guacamole!
