School Cooking Classes

BRING COOKING TO YOUR SCHOOL!


Since 2011, Sprouts Cooking Club has been teaching healthy cooking classes in classrooms all over the Bay Area and New York! If you would like your child to learn how to cook right at school, just send us an email and we’ll reach out to your child’s school! Just think! Soon YOUR CHILD could be cooking up a delicious recipe with a Sprouts chef every week!

Our seasonal school classes are an intensive, culinary experience chock-full of hands-on cooking classes. We combine farm-fresh ingredients, instruction from Sprouts’ trained chefs, and creative recipes that children can recreate right at home! As students work together to prepare and enjoy their culinary creations, they gain a foundation of essential culinary skills and an understanding of where food comes from.

TESTIMONIALS

Sprouts does a fantastic job helping to teach young children about where healthy food comes from, why it is important, and how to make it. Also, why and who does not have access to well-balanced meals, and what they can do to help.

-Emalee M. (Parent)

It’s always awesome to see a shy or nervous child’s personality emerge while cooking….I always enjoy working with the kids that come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.

-Casey A. (Volunteer)

I love the way that they teach kids how to cook and how they make really good food by using real ingredients and real chefs. I learned how to cut and cook, to know whether the ingredients taste good and what goes together…They make sure that all kids get to do things so that it’s fair to everyone!

-After School Student

My son is absolutely LOVING the class. I am impressed with the recipes and lessons you do, hands down best club we have done.
