3.1.16-seedtomouthflyerCGDuring the month of February we had several exciting program meetings with youth Willie Mays Club members in the Seed to Mouth cooking class, lead by CommunityGrows Cooking Programs Manager Crystal Jones. IMG_0731We started the month off by covering the rules of knife safety, then applied those rules with an activity that distinguished the difference between dicing, chopping, and julienne slicing. IMG_0031IMG_0034Using newly learned tools, youth club members were able to assist in preparation for a surprise garden pizza oven day held at the clubhouse, which focused heavily on ways to incorporate nutrients into the foods that they love.

Going forward, youth members will be using these harvest to host a salad day once a month, IMG_0679where not only will they make a variety of large salads to enjoy on the day of, IMG_0672but youth club members will also be able to take home salad bags and recipes to share with their families.IMG_0691 [more Photos and Flyer by Crystal Jones].
