Cooking for Kids

Calling all kids for some fun in the kitchen! Over 8 weeks, build confidence, practice safe kitchen skills, and eat yummy food as we cook our way through different recipes, learning basic cooking skills along the way. Kids leave this series feeling inspired to try new foods! Classes are led by an experienced cooking instructor in our YMCA kitchen spaces.

Mindful Eating Series

Do you ever think about your relationship with food? Maybe you’ve felt guilt or shame about food choices, or you’ve felt you lack willpower and that food has control over you. You may have tried different diets and know there must be a better way to nourish yourself AND feel good about food – good news, there is a way! Mindful Eating is a practice that will help you understand HOW and WHY you eat, not just what you eat, guiding you to feel EMPOWERED and confident about food.
