Join our vibrant community by attending A Taste of African Heritage classes near you! Browse the directory below (listed in alphabetical order by state and then by city), and then contact the instructor in order to register for a class. We are continually updating our class offerings, so please check back if there is nothing near you at the moment. 

If you’d like your community to host or participate in A Taste of African Heritage, feel free to contact Paola Garza so we’ll be aware of your interest. Or consider teaching a class yourself! In 2019, we moved into the next phase of our heritage diet programming and began licensing it on an annual basis. Organizations interested in teaching A Taste of African Heritage or A Children’s Taste of African Heritage can license each curriculum annually, which allows the licensee to download and print the curriculum and required entrance/exit surveys. Contact us to learn more. Alternatively, organizations and interested teachers can purchase the printed adult student handbooks and teacher’s manual and children’s student handbooks and teacher’s manual in our webstore with or without a license.
