Cooking and Nutrition Classes

Led by a chef and registered dietitian, our programs allow children to actively participate in chopping, peeling, measuring, mixing, and baking healthy foods while learning about the importance of nutrition. Kids learn new cooking skills and recipes that promote healthy eating and cultivate a love for cooking.

The programs are generously funded by the Stephanie and David Spina Family Foundation.

Choose from Three Cooking and Nutrition Programs:
