The LFRC’s Kids Cooking Camp is a fun-filled week designed to help children ages 6-9 learn kitchen safety, sanitation, basic cooking skills, and how to make quick and healthful snacks and meals for themselves. It helps children develop healthful dietary habits that will make them healthier adults. The camp is generously funded by grants and donations to the LFRC and is free to participants.
In Summer 2016, two identical sessions of the Kids Cooking Camp will be offered.

Crock Pot Days are designed to demonstrate how nutritious meals can be prepared using just a crock pot and food items available at the Pantry. Samples are offered to Pantry clients and recipes and ingredient lists are distributed. The goals are to encourage healthier diets, and family participation in meal preparation and consumption. Crock Pot Days are conducted once each quarter.
