The Dinner Tonight! program aims to provide healthy recipes for Texans and increase self-efficacy in meal planning, healthy cooking techniques and food safety.
The program consists of in-person and virtual Healthy Cooking Schools, demonstrations and a web-based continuing education resource in the form of a website, social media and direct-to-audience newsletters.
The goal of Dinner Tonight! is to provide Texans with a reliable “go-to” resource for healthy recipes, nutrition information, healthy cooking techniques, food safety information and more.
