Our next generation needs guidance on how to get cooking again. The obesity epidemic is out of control with lack of cooking at home and sedentary lifestyles. Our aim is to equip students with the skills, knowledge and tools to create healthy meals. We invite the entire family to come together to cook and eat a healthy meal around a table of community. The families go home with the recipes and ingredients to duplicate each experience. The curriculum is 11 weeks with a nutrition topic and kitchen skill each week. The last week is a cooking throw down for the families to showcase their skills. The class is every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 pm. In order for the family to qualify for the FREE classes a student must be 5th-12th grade, attend one of the 6 schools with the East side Promise Zone and/or live within 78202 or 78208. When a student is eligible the entire family is encouraged to participate.
