Farmers Market Culinary Arts Kids Camp
About the Cooking Class
Our focus is to introduce kids to farmers markets and products found locally. Research has shown the importance of "hands on" experiences with foods and consumption by children, especially fruits and vegetables.
The MSU Extension Service and the Department of Food Science, Nutrition, and Health Promotion are excited to host this camp for kids to experience local food production and food preparation, while building culinary skills.
We hope to share our passion for the art and science of cooking and food preparation.
