Nutritionists at The Giant Company, the Carlisle, Pa.-based operator of 190 supermarkets, will be offering a series of free virtual cooking classes to help consumers combat “meal fatigue,” as the continuing coronavirus pandemic and cooking and eating at home challenge shoppers to come up with fresh ideas for dinner.
The “Family Meals at 5” classes, which will be held each Tuesday at 5 p.m. from Jan. 12 through Feb. 23, give Giant shoppers a live opportunity to cook affordable, simple meals each week.
“All of us are looking to start the new year with a fresh start and that includes meal ideas to bring the family together around the table,” said Rabyia Bower, RD, LD, regional nutritionist with The GIANT Company. “Our series of free virtual classes provide quick and affordable solutions to eliminate meal fatigue and spark inspiration in your kitchen this year.”
The complete schedule of cooking classes includes:
Jan. 12—Stir Fry Chicken Noodles
Jan. 19—Chicken Tortilla Soup
Jan. 26—Salmon & Broccoli Shepherd’s Pie
Feb. 2—Turkey Meat Loaves Sheet Pan Dinner
Feb. 9—Lime & Coconut Chicken Soup
Feb. 16—Lemony Chicken & Potatoes
Feb. 23—Weeknight Chicken & Dumplings
The nutritionists’ team will also be hosting a “Galentine’s Day” live virtual class on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. with a chocolate mug cake along with a wine and food pairing.
The GIANT Company’s nutritionists offer a full schedule of virtual classes weekly from mini chefs and junior chefs to an adult nutrition series that provides tips and healthful choices. All classes are free to attend, but advanced registration is required for each class. A complete listing of ingredients needed for each virtual class is also available on the event page. In addition, customers can earn 200 CHOICE Rewards points when they register, provide their card number and attend the entire nutritionist class.
