Our mission is not only to teach children the fundamentals of cooking but also help with life skills. This class is to serve as a mentorship and leadership atmosphere for the youth and teenagers in our community. We believe it is up to us to show the new generation the world is bigger than their neighborhoods.Our classes are focused on leaving no child behind. We are also offering classes for children with physical challenges, behavioral, and mental disorders. We believe and live by the saying “when you teach a child to cook, you feed them for a lifetime!”
