When youth are left home alone, what do they eat? Bread and butter? Cereal? Most likely. What's Cooking looks to change this. This FREE program is geared to provide food education as well as to increase skills and awareness of agriculture, healthy eating, food preparation, and food purchasing skills among youth. Youth will be exposed to hands-on food literacy education that highlights general nutrition, food safety, selection, preparation, and cooking skills.
