Teens Love Cooking

Blue Sky Center, in partnership with the Cuyama Joint Unified School District, will pilot a free seven-week culinary after school program for secondary school students. The program will be facilitated by Blue Sky Center’s Food Action Coordinator, Chef Molly Quigley, and local volunteers. Teens Love Cooking hopes to equip students with foundational kitchen skills and cooking knowledge in order to help them make healthy food choices. The program will begin in mid-February at the Blue Sky Center, and will run through April with a culminating feast for family and friends to share the skills learned over the seven-week course.

If interested, please fill out a permission slip and return it to Blue Sky Center or at the school's main office. Forms can also be emailed to elise@blueskycenter.org.
