I Can Cook (TBD)

An introductory opportunity to be exposed to all aspects of kitchen and culinary exploration while exploring adapted equipment, learning about kitchen safety and awareness, navigating a kitchen and much more.

Overview

Join us virtually for I Can Cook

Kids ages 8 – 12 are invited to join us for an introductory opportunity to be exposed to all aspects of kitchen and culinary exploration while exploring adapted equipment, learning about kitchen safety and awareness, navigating a kitchen and much more. Washing, prepping, mixing, serving and cutting will be some of the many skills and activities that will be explored.

The art of cooking

The art of cooking is increasingly being lost as young people find themselves with less time, and more options to “eat on the go”. However, there are several tricks that blind and visually impaired young adults can use in the kitchen.

Getting kids involved in the kitchen can help change behaviors early and empower children to develop good life-long eating habits. Kids who learn how to cook tend to eat more nutritious foods and they’re learning a skill that is very important.
