Kids Cooking Club

Due to COVID-19, this program will not be offered until further notice.

Flavors change from season to season. This program, sponsored by Harris Teeter, helps children to explore different foods and combine them into recipes.

Having to take steps one by one helps children’s reasoning and comprehension skills.
