Response to COVID
With the current pandemic situation, many of the plans for expansion have been put on hold. The CENC team at McMaster has decided to take our education virtual. Our plan for in-person cooking classes has shifted to a series of 12 short and engaging cooking videos that will be released monthly over the next year. The videos will demonstrate the steps for each recipe and highlight nutritional benefits in a simple format.
