Fresh, Fast and Delicious for Less
Thursday, September 29 | 11:45AM-12:30PM and 1-1:45PM

Boston

Project Bread Chef Vanessa Labranche leads this free cooking demonstration to teach market patrons how to prepare healthy meals on a budget.

Each week, Chef Vanessa introduces new recipes that feature fresh, healthy foods that can be purchased at the market. Enjoy simple, tasty recipes that do not require a lot of time, skill, or money to prepare.

Classes are open to all.

Project Bread takes a fresh approach to ending hunger. They believe that the opposite of hungry isn't simply full - it's healthy. And because there's no single face of hunger, they develop multiple solutions that meet people where they are - solutions that provide people of all ages and walks of life with sustainable, reliable access to nutritious food.
