Cooks for Health 

 

Cooks For Health is a twelve-week, after-school workshop series that teaches students basic culinary skills necessary to prepare simple, wholesome recipes from start to finish. While learning to cook, students explore the important role nutrition plays in building healthy bodies and minds. The program provides opportunities for students to share their skills and excitement with their own community through Community Tasting Tables, and culminates with a Cook Off for Health.

The Sylvia Center partners with public schools, and other youth-serving organizations, through our Full Plate Programs so that young people can learn the connection between healthy food and the farm. Students discover where whole foods come from, practice basic culinary skills, and get the opportunity to prepare a wholesome meal together. Our programs are adapted to be age and setting appropriate. In our in-class series, students learn how to build their own healthy plate.
