Get Healthy on the Railroad Cooking Classes Sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama

THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH AT 3:30 P.M.

All events are FREE to attend! Registration will open 30 minutes prior to class.

Classes will be held on the Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza on Sunday afternoons between 3:30 and 5:00 p.m. Registration will open 30 minutes prior to the class.

Get Healthy on the Railroad, sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, returns in 2018 to offer five healthy nutrition classes at Railroad Park. Classes will be led by area non‐profits on the Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza on the first Sunday of each month from May through September. The first 100 registered attendees will receive free produce and a recipe card so they can easily replicate the dish at home. All produce will be sourced from local farmers through Piggly Wiggly.

Each cooking class is taught by representatives from Urban Ministry or Jones Valley Teaching Farm. Join Urban Ministry's chef Ama Shambulia for a cooking class designed to make southern favorites more healthy and nutritious. Jones Valley Teaching Farm will lead cooking demonstrations utilizing produce grown on their teaching farms.
