Organizers say one goal of the community kitchen in Chicago's Austin neighborhood will be to increase demand for fresh food and decrease the demand for low-nutrient, high-calorie foods that can lead to obesity and health problems.
The classes will be appropriate for young people, families and seniors, with the first class on Monday, Oct. 24.
