    Mikaela, Give Me A Chance has cooking/budgeting/food prep classes as well. For those who use the food bank at Catholic Community Services, there are also cooking classes once a month. Good food can be very affordable if you use all the resources available (especially learning to cook!).
    :)

    Do you know what’s happened with Edible Wasatch? I haven’t seen an issue of their magazine in a while, but they have great recipes to use local and seasonal foods, as well.

    • I can’t believe I forgot Edible Wasatch, they no longer do print magazines, I was so sad I love them! I will add Give Me A Chance too, what a great resource!

  2. This is so helpful! Thanks for compiling!
