Helda Klassen-Kitchen Manager-2nd Floor Woman’s Recovery Centre

April 23, 2018 | In:


I am Helda Klassen. I have been the 2nd Floor Kitchen Manager for five years.  I have been a cook for 30 plus years.  My first cooking experience was helping my 4-H club cater and former 4-H member’s wedding.  I was in the kitchen with Mom and Grandma learning our old country meals, at a very early age.  I started in a restaurant as a dishwasher, but within a few short months I transferred to breakfast line cook and 3:30am comes mighty quickly.

I have worked as, line cook, buffet cook, 1st cook, 2nd cook, breakfast cook, night shift supervisor baker and owned my own tiny little restaurant where I did everything including serving customers.

I enjoy working at the 2nd Floor Women’s Recovery Centre. Teaching the clients, the importance of cooking from scratch, and with a few simple ingredients and well balanced meal can be prepared economically.



The Lakeland Centre for FASD provides cost-free programs and services in the Cold Lake, Bonnyville, St. Paul and Lac la Biche areas, as well as on First Nations and Métis Settlements through Alberta.
