Our Programs

The CookWELL Kitchen is a unique teaching space designed to encourage healthy food choices, preferences, and attitudes by teaching skills to create nutritious and delicious dishes. Programs focus on basic kitchen safety, nutrition, and making simple healthy snacks and meals. Programs are led by ServSafe-trained professionals.

The CookWELL Kitchen can comfortably accommodate up to 16 people and has four workstations.

Select programs may be offered in Spanish. Please inquire directly about availability.

Programs are available at the Poe Center's CookWELL Kitchen, virtually, and under some circumstances at offsite locations with proper space and equipment. Please contact Lauren McCallum for details, rates, and availability. You may also call (919) 231-4006.

As a proud recipient of the SNAP-Ed grant, the Poe Center is able to provide intensive nutrition and physical activity programming to many low-income populations in North Carolina
