The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Williamson County will present a Freezer Pleasers program on Aug. 23.
The event will take place from 4-6 p.m. at 100 Wilco Way, Suite AG205, in Georgetown.
The cost is $25, and participants must preregister at https://tx.ag/FreezerPleasers. Attendees must pay at the door with exact cash or a check made payable to Williamson FCS.
“This is a modern meal prep class for those with busy lives,” said event instructor Katie Sharpton, AgriLife Extension family and community health agent, Williamson County.
Not only does advanced meal preparation save money and help eliminate food waste, planning can also help control the amount of sugar, fat and calories in a meal and address other nutritional concerns someone may have, she said.
“Having meals on hand also saves you time and makes it easier to eat healthy when you have things already in your freezer,” Sharpton said.
Contact Sharpton at 512-943-3300 with questions or for more information.
