Ferment for Health Cooking Class at the Teaching Kitchen

March 1, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Ferment for Health Cooking Class at the Teaching Kitchen

From sauerkraut in Germany to kimchi in Korea, the history of fermentation is an exploration of tradition and culture. Join us in the kitchen as we get up close and personal with the microscopic organisms that many believe to be both our ancestors and allies. Learn how easy and beneficial it can be to produce your own fermented foods and beverages safely at home. Participants will get to taste a variety of homemade fermentations – sauerkraut, apple cider vinegar, kombucha, kimchi, kefir, and more! Students will also work hands-on to make their very own jar of lacto-fermented veggies to take home.

Cost: $45

Time: 5:30-7:30pm

This class is suitable for adults

More about the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia

We are a network of friends working to feed the ill, needy, seniors, and children of northeast Georgia. Our mission is to work toward ending hunger as part of an overall community effort to alleviate poverty.

The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia was founded in 1992 in an effort to end hunger in northeast Georgia. That year, the food bank distributed approximately 350,000 pounds of food to 36 agencies. The organization has grown tremendously since then, distributing nearly 12 million pounds of food through more than 225 partner organizations in 2015.

In 2016, the Food Bank earned a “High Achievement” ranking from The American Institute of Baking Food Safety Audit, the most stringent food safety standards in the food industry. The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia is one of many food banks in the U.S. to be certified by AIB and one of the few to receive the ranking of “High Achievement.” The AIB ranking also places the Food Bank within the top 5 to 10 percent of food safety in the U.S. and in the top 10 percent of the food industry.

Once the Food Bank receives the food, it is processed and stored in dry, refrigerated, and frozen storage units. Emergency food is distributed to those in need through partner agencies and community programs.
