Cook Well. Eat Well. Live Well.

The Samford Wellness Kitchen offers classes to the Birmingham community. Run by Samford’s Department of Nutrition and Dietetics in the School of Public Health, participants will learn from registered dietitians and chefs, garnering skills and knowledge that will help them prepare healthy and delicious meals.

All classes take place in the College of Health Science’s Food Production Labs, which were formerly the Southern Living Test Kitchens. A participant notebook with all recipes and nutrition information is provided for reference.

If you do not see a class that you were expecting to be available check back soon as classes are added as they become available. You can also reach us by email.

The mission of Samford Wellness Kitchen is to offer hands-on culinary nutrition classes, with a focus on ‘Food is Medicine’, for community members (adults/teens), Samford students and employees.
