YWCA Teaching Kitchen provides coordination of nutrition and cooking education classes for the Greater High Point community.

Educational classes will focus on teaching individuals to cook healthy while on a budget and eating healthy for chronic diseases. All ages and demographics are welcome.


These classes educate and empower individuals to take control of their health, understand the negative effects of poor diet on their health, increase their cooking efficiency, and learn how to choose healthy low-cost, fresh ingredients to cook a nutritious meal.

Students gain knowledge and an improved attitude towards healthy foods that will help improve food security.

Programs include hands-on learning through cooking demonstrations, food preparation, and healthy food recognition. And the programs focus on how to recognize and manage chronic disease symptoms through healthy eating.

The teaching kitchen is utilized by all of the program areas within YWCA.

Community organizations are also invited to use the teaching kitchen to have hands-on teaching and demonstration classes.
