In the Kitchen

SEEDS After School students learn to cook as part of hands-on lessons in nutrition and health. Did you know that eating together is also a great way to make friends and build trust? We thought you did!

“I like to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Knowing how to cook is important for my future.” – Gabe

A common concern about today’s school day is that it doesn’t include enough important life skills. SEEDS After School tackles that challenge in many ways including by getting students comfortable in the kitchen. Do we embed language arts and math lessons as we learn to follow a recipe? Of course we do!

“It’s so important to get youth comfortable in the kitchen and cooking on a regular basis. And days we get to cook at SEEDS are especially fun, because we get to learn AND eat!” – Joe Tobin, SEEDS Site Coordinator
