Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming or boring. Our programs help you learn how to make healthy food choices and learn safe preparation and sustainable eating habits in our functional kitchen spaces to improve your overall health, well-being and happiness.

Our Programs

Adult Programs (18+ years)

Looking to learn new kitchen skills or discover new recipes? We offer in-person cooking workshops where a YMCA instructor will lead you through recipes and you will leave with simple and economic recipes that can be made at home.

Collective Kitchen (Edmonton only)

Join us at Boyle Street Plaza in Edmonton to cook for yourself or your family! The class chooses the menu, the facilitator purchases the food and the group creates the meals as a team. Basic nutrition, food preparation and food safety are discussed throughout the class. Groups prepare two to three meals per session and portions can be ordered at a cost of $4 each. Participants are asked to bring their own takeaway containers. 

Classes are available on:

  • Tuesdays from 1–3pm
  • Wednesdays from 10am–12pm
  • Thursdays from 11:30am–1:30pm
  • Fridays from 10am–12pm
