The Student Health Promotion team will also be hosting a series of food skill workshops titled "KPU Kitchen". Students will learn how to prepare a simple, slow-cooker meal on a budget. And guess what? Each participant who attends will get a $50 Walmart gift-card and all of the ingredients needed to make a meal at home! The workshops will be led by a Registered Dietitian and will teach you valuable skills you can apply everyday! Plus, dinner is on us!
