Each child will make their own individual dinner. You’ll make Veggie Loaded Nachos, Mediterranean Pita Pockets, Flatbread Pizzas and Chickpea Pesto Pasta Salad. All recipes are nut and meat free and may contain dairy.

Students will come home with new recipes, new skills, and new knowledge about the food that they eat.
