Morgan County Illinois Junior Chefs
Illinois Junior Chef’s is a fun hands on activity that kids enjoy. The children meet for fives days two hours each day. The children learn about safety in the kitchen first and then all of the different food groups. The children were able to cook two recipes each day. This year SNAP –Education partnered with the Master Gardeners as they used their skills to help the children bring the food to the table. It turned out to be great fun and the children seemed to really enjoy getting to cook in a safe environment. At the end of the week, the children received a graduation certificate, a recipe book, and kitchen utensils for the job well done while their family enjoyed some Summer Chili and Eggs Olé.
