Fast food, frozen dinners, and delivery on demand have created a generation unaware of the value of a healthy home cooked meal. Studies have shown that children who learn to cook have healthier dietary habits that carry into adulthood. 

 

This is where we come in!  Feeding Fort Wayne Kids is an 6 week interactive culinary program designed to teach 8-12 year old's how much fun cooking and learning about food can truly be!

 

We introduce them to many nutritious  foods that can help instill healthier eating habits and they create the tasteful meals that they get to take home at the end of every class.
