About My Family Kitchen

My Family Kitchen is an 8-week program where a small group of children in elementary or middle school learn how to prepare simple, healthy, affordable meals. The mission of the program is to demonstrate how easy it is to make healthy and tasty meals by learning skills like chopping and roasting, measuring ingredients, and following recipes. While their cooking skills increase, children learn teamwork, apply problem solving, gain confidence, and learn the connection between diet and health. When the children and volunteer teachers sit down and share the meal, family-style, the students discover new favorite flavors and foods. Starting with basic recipes like scrambled eggs, children progress to making more complex meals such as roasted cod with breadcrumb topping or sloppy joe sliders with quick pickled cucumbers.
