Special Offer for August and September Classes

Since we began offering cooking classes about six years ago, we’ve always offered them at cost – no profit to the Co-op – and never raised prices. We’d like to explore offering classes to a wider variety of community members, but without a profit margin there’s little room for discounts.

The solution? We’re introducing summer tiered class pricing with two new categories: Benefactor Level and Kitchen Kindness Level. This will allow us to offer cooking classes at a discount for those who might not otherwise be able to attend.  We encourage you to pay at the highest level you feel comfortable affording!

**NEW** $45 – Benefactor Level: At this level you’ll help cover the cost for folks not otherwise able to attend classes.
$35- Non-Owner “Real Cost” Level: This price covers the actual cost of our offering a cooking class.
$30- Owner “Real Cost” Level: This level reflects our actual cost of offering cooking classes, with a discount reflecting the support of owner payments to offset the real cost.
**NEW** $20 – Kitchen Kindness Level: At this level, folks can attend classes at a rate below the Owner “Real Cost” Level; supported by generous contributions of those in our co-op community who sign up at the Benefactor Level.
