CARLISLE, PA. - Every Monday and Wednesday during the month of October, The GIANT Company is hosting virtual Halloween cooking lessons appropriate for all ages. 

“The GIANT Company and our new ‘For Today’s Table’ brand platform is all about bringing families together at the table to connect over a meal,” said Kilene Knitter, regional nutritionist for The GIANT Company. “What better way to show the importance of gathering together than by cooking along with your kids via our free virtual classes?
