MISSION:

Educate, inform and support members of our regional community to create a healthy, local and sustainable food culture.

Our food system niche: CCK partners with organizations in our community to provide classes for the general public, including youth programs, on nutritious cooking, using fresh, local ingredients. We provide classroom and real-world education to consumers and food-business entrepreneurs to encourage use of locally grown and healthy ingredients.

We envision communities where enthusiasm for local food helps people, the environment and the economy thrive.

REGISTRATION CLOSED for the 2018 Kid’s Cooking After School Program
Warm up to Winter Cooking! Experience six fun filled session learning to cook or expanding on knowledge from our popular summer camp.

Kids will learn basic kitchen skills as well as kitchen safety while preparing healthy foods. The theme for this year’s program for grades 1-3 is “Warm Winter Foods” where participants will make healthy versions of classic winter dishes. Grades 4-6 will focus on “Soups and Such”, making a variety of soups, stews and breads. The class sessions are a hands-on learning experience working in small groups to prepare new recipes.

Volunteer! We need your help to grow our local food community. We’re currently looking for volunteer teacher aids to help with our After School Kids Cooking Program January 30th – March 8th. Sign up here!
