“Community Cooks!” offers free cooking classes for kids, teens, and adults

The St. Johns County Public Library System is pleased to announce the “Community Cooks!” culinary literacy program, made possible by a recently awarded Innovation Project Grant. This new program allows participants of all ages to experience hands-on food preparation in a fun and health-enhancing way. Throughout the summer, the “Community Cooks!” program is offering four unique and exciting classes at the Southeast and Hastings branch libraries. Each class will cover topics ranging from creating easy, affordable, and healthy meals, learning new cooking techniques and food safety, and discovering ways to snack smarter. Registration is required as space is limited. Participants may register for one or all of the classes. Space is still available for the classes offered on the following dates, times, and locations:

    Added Sugar is not so Sweet

    Snack Smarter

    “Community Cooks!” is supported with funds provided by the Northeast Florida Library Information Network (NEFLIN) and was created in partnership with the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and utilizes recipes from the American Heart Association.
