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
- Learn kitchen essentials
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.
