Cooking, Coping & Can-do

Stress relief doesn't always mean meditation and yoga (though both are great) - doing stuff you're good at and gives you joy is a coping skill. Cooking is a popular activity because it has so many Resilience-building benefits. 

Cooking Videos

Protection: Healthy eating is protective of our good health.
Supportive Relationship: Eating together helps build connection.
Can-Do: When you do something you're good at or you build confidence. 
Belonging: A great way to create a sense of community belonging and fellowship is through community meal sharing. 

We aren't professional chefs but we know how to cook and eat. Food is protective, encourages relationships, supports us feeling good, builds confidence, is a way to socialize and the best place to tell a story.
