Start the new year with free classes to learn how small changes in food and fitness help you increase energy, save money and meet new people. Local nonprofit On Common Ground offers free cooking, nutrition and fitness classes at partner locations including Washoe County libraries, Northern Nevada HOPES, and the Women and Childrens Center of the Sierras.

Funded through SNAP-Ed, public classes begin January 3rd and continue through September for all ages over six. Class calendar available on the web at Drop ins welcome, space permitting. Reserve your spot in future classes by signing up at or during class times at local sites.

The Center for Disease Control reports that 86 percent of all healthcare costs in the United States are food related. At On Common Ground, we intend to change those numbers, says Dawn Fernandez, director of the Heart of Community Instructional Program. We want to empower everyone to curb healthcare costs and improve personal health through easy, inexpensive choices that help build healthy habits.

Access to affordable, nutritious food and the ability to prepare it allows every adult and child to work, learn, grow and fight disease.

Free classes open to the public are listed below. Class topics include after-school activities, recipe makeovers, cardio-aerobics, flexibility and yoga, weight management and how to shop on a budget.
