Combes Wellness Center hosts healthy cooking classes

COMBES— Residents interested in learning about health-conscious recipes and anyone else wanting to join, are invited to a night of healthy cooking.

The Combes Physical & Wellness Center will be hosting it’s second annual “Happy Kitchen/La Cocina Alegre” six week session of cooking classes.

These classes come from the Brownsville Wellness Coalition center with information about portion control, fruits and vegetables that should be consumed, and guidelines on how to read packages and ingredients.

“We do these classes once a year which is a six week program. Classes are once a week and are under the ‘Tu Salud Si Cuenta’ program,” Becky Villasana, Community Health Worker at Combes Wellness Center, said.

The six week program is a Bilingual class and rotates around other cities in the Rio Grande Valley.

“The class provides information as they are doing hands-on cooking. Everyone is welcome to attend,” Villasana said.
