COLUMBUS - Preparing meals for one or for “just the two of us” can seem like a big effort for a small reward. Often the hassle of food preparation, dishes, and figuring out what to do with the leftovers can leave individuals choosing unhealthy alternatives.

Do you struggle with motivation or ideas on how to prepare meals for one or two people? Instead of saying, “Why bother?,” join the Cherokee County K-State Research and Extension office at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, May 4, for Eating for One (or Two). We will discuss healthy and convenient recipes that you can prepare at home. We will also discuss simple freezer recipes that will reduce time spent (and dishes dirtied) in the kitchen.

The class is free to attend. Registration is not required, but to ensure we have enough samples for everyone, please call 620-429-3849 to get signed up. The class will be located at the Cherokee County K-State Research and Extension office at 124 W. Country Road in Columbus.
