Kids Cook

Our Kids Cook workshops provide nutrition education at after school program and summer camp sites. Kids gain independence and cooking skills as they practice preparing simple, healthy foods in a fun learning environment.

Kids Cook includes three sessions—breakfast, lunch and snack. Each session lasts one hour, and curriculum works best for ages 5-12.

If you are interested in having Kids Cook lessons at your public school or afterschool program, email nutrition@pittsburghfoodbank.org.
