  • Get Fresh! public cooking demonstrations teach viewers how to make healthy food options like the salsa pictured above based on the USDA's MyPlate and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

ADA, Okla. – The Chickasaw Nation’s “Get Fresh!” Program teaches healthy meal preparation with entertaining cooking shows that are free and open to the public. During National Nutrition Month, the Get Fresh! program has several locations, including Ardmore, Purcell, Duncan and Ada, as well as the Family Life Center in Ada.

Shows consist of live, interactive cooking demonstrations led by specialists who sprinkle in bits of healthy knowledge.

The nutrition education presentation is science-based and grounded in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's “MyPlate” program.

On the table with these culinary classes are new recipes and skills meant to boost a family’s everyday eating experiences. When the dish is done, attendees get to sample the food.

In March, attendees can expect to learn about and consume Zesty Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Rollups. These dishes were planned around the theme of National Nutrition Month. Scheduled locations, times and dates are listed below.
