TEMPLETON — The Wellness Kitchen’s Lead Chef, Evan Vossler, has a passion for instilling in youth the importance of quality nutrition and cooking skills. If it were up to him, he’d teach courses such as this several times per year. Back in June, he co-led the Teen Cooking Program for ages 13 through 18 with wonderful feedback from kids and parents, including:
“She is much more interested in clean eating than she was before and is even integrating into her home life.” And “She really liked it; she shares what she learned with her friends and family.”
A new series of Kids Cooking Classes is scheduled for three Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in October for ages 8 through 12.
Classes are at a suggested donation of $10 per class and parents must be present, but won’t be participating. The Wellness Kitchen has a resource library to keep the parents entertained throughout the one-and-one-half hour class.
Contact The Wellness Kitchen if you are interested in sponsoring child-sized small aprons or participation awards for this program.
The schedule is as follows:
Oct. 15 — How to Eat a Rainbow
Oct. 22 — Breakfast and Beyond
Oct. 29 — Power Snacks
