We teach young people about the connection between food and health through nutrition-focused, culinary-based programming.
Participants in The Sylvia Center’s programming learn to:
- Distinguish between whole and processed foods
- Build a healthy plate
- Explore new foods
- Add flavor healthfully
- Understand seasonality
- Follow good hygiene and sanitation
Programs boost confidence by helping participants develop life skills, including public speaking, teamwork, and time management. Teen and young adult programs introduce food justice and food science.
