Kids Cook at School is dedicated to healthy living promotions in
healthy food, cultural cuisine and active lifestyles. Programs for schools and community groups focus on healthy cooking
classes for students (JK-8), youth and adults. School programs also include an active play component in a new Cook
and Move program.
"Good nutrition and
physical activity supports academics, athletics and overall good health." explains Maria Folino, Co-Director of the program.
The new format includes a cooking lesson, a recipe kit for home, active games and physical activity challenge for the family...lot's
of fun for everyone!
It's easy to participate...
classes are held during Lunch, After-School or at Parent-Student Wellness events. You don't need a kitchen...programs
are held in the gymnasium or an available classroom. Safe food handling concepts and cooking skills are featured in
Not only is this a
fun and interactive experience at school, every recipe and physical activity is rolled into a take-home project that the student
does at home with siblings and their parents. It is a wonderful way to engage family participation and spend time together
in a way that promotes healthy living.
communities are invited to visit a Lunch, After-school or Student-Parent Event at participating schools. Please contact
