Online Healthy Teaching Kitchen
Come cook with Us!
- Making healthy food choices is the #1 thing you can do for your health. Learning how to cook can be one step towards getting healthier foods on your plate. The Healthy Teaching Kitchen (HTK) online program provides live, virtual cooking classes for Veterans to increase nutrition knowledge, cooking skills, and build confidence in cooking at home with healthy, minimally processed foods.
Who Can Attend?
- Classes are open to VA-enrolled Veterans. Guests in the same household are welcome. Contact your local HTK Dietitian, Jessica Martini, for more information or if you have questions.
How Do I Connect to the Online Appointment?
- Prior to your appointment, you will receive an email from VA Video Connect Appointment with a link that says “Click Here to Join the VA Video Connect appointment”. Click that link and it should take you to your appointment!
