Lisa Sharp-Gomez and Taylor Pond
We will host monthly, one hour, in-classroom cooking and nutrition lessons that are geared towards students in grades K-5.
These lessons are planned to supplement grade specific curriculum to provide an overall experience, which will enhance learning and increase understanding of good nutrition.
Our goal is to provide quality educational enhancement to elementary school students using hands on cooking experiences to increase awareness of good nutrition by working in conjunction with teachers to seamlessly integrate nutrition lessons into planned grade specific curricula.
