Description

Meals on Wheels London/Growing Chefs Ontario! have added another free intergenerational cooking session for 8-11 year olds and the older adults in their lives. Thank you, London, for going intergenerational wtih us! Please note that all sessions offer the same menu, but that we will be mixing things up again in the fall.

On TUESDAYS AUG 8 & 29 (and, now, also AUG 22), 1-4PM, children and youth will enjoy a FREE collaborative cooking session, a grocery store treasure hunt and healthy eating activities! Meals on Wheels London, Growing Chefs Ontario!, The Old East Village Grocer, and London Public Library are delighted to partner in offering these free sessions. Classes will be held at The Village Table @ 630 Dundas Street in a heritage building shared with the Old East Village Grocer.

Registration is required. We highly encourage any older adult family members to register as well on Eventbrite and engage with their youth during the session. (Please note that older adult family registration is not necessary for children/youth to attend.)

AGES 12-15 YEARS and older adult family: TUES., AUG 29, 1-4PM - Click HERE to move to a different page.

The theme for all sessions is "Summer Picnic" and includes a summer salad bar and variety of fresh, summer offerings.

With this unique opportunity, children and youth will gain:

  • Increased confidence with cooking, navigating the kitchen, kitchen tools, and the grocery store;

  • an appreciation of cooking and creative possibilities in the kitchen;

  • increased recipe literacy and understanding of kitchen safety;

  • an immersion of the senses in a tactile, tasting, and smelling experience; and

  • the sense of community connection that comes from sharing and making a meal together!

LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the New Horizons for Seniors Program and the Government of Canada that makes this program possible.
