CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) - A cooking class is helping the homeless in Charlottesville. Saturday, The Haven spiced things up for an Indian cooking demonstration.

Participants mashed, mixed and poured curry and other ingredients while learning how to make Bengali-style chicken, okra and rice.

“They prepare a meal from a different culture and share it in our space,” said Nancy Carpenter, manager of coordinated assessment at The Haven. “They get exposed to what the day shelter does.”

The cooking class benefits day events at The Haven which provides people a warm place to stay during the day.
