LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Catholic Charities Diocese of Lubbock is offering a free nutritional program to teach residents how to live a healthy lifestyle.

The "Learn How to Cook" program focuses on how to create easy, delicious meals with an affordable budget.

"Anyone that is interested in learning about nutrition we encourage them to participate and to come and learn for their own benefits," said Catholic Charities Diocese Executive Director Cynthia Quintanilla.

The organization teamed up with Covenant Hospital and Texas Agrilife extension to provide the community access to basic nutrition knowledge. 

"It's just a lot of wanting to help everyone understand that they can eat healthy," said Alexandra Garcia, director of the "Learn to Cook" program. "They can live a healthier lifestyle". 

Participant Lataya Renna said the program was a great opportunity to spend time with her children.

"I just think it was a wonderful journey," Johnson said. "We all learned the same thing and we were all able to hold each other accountable and engage in cooking."
