Cooking with Kids

Hands-on learning with fresh, affordable foods from diverse cultural traditions. We envision a world where cooking is part of life, where all people have the skills and means to eat and enjoy nourishing, wholesome food every day. Cooking with Kids Middle School Initiative goals are to educate and empower middle school students to make healthy choices now and throughout their lives. Objectives are that students will: 1) acquire practical cooking skills; 2) learn to make sound nutritional choices through exploring a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; and 3) learn about, respect, and appreciate people of different cultures, while working together cooperatively.
