The Great Killeen Free Clinic will host a cooking series called “A Taste of Latin American Heritage” once a month during the next three months, according to a news release issued by the clinic’s new health coordinator.

The classes will be sponsored by the Greater Killeen Community Clinic and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Each session is meant to celebrate the eating style of Latin American ancestors from Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean through monthly recipe demonstrations that are enjoyable, affordable and healthy, according to the release.

The presentations and free lunches will be from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 11, Nov. 15 and Dec. 13 in the Community Development Training Room at 802 N. Second St.

For a spot at one of the cooking sessions, residents are asked to RSVP with Health Coordinator Stephanie Wallace at or by phone at 254-213-3550, ext. 3.
