What is Food Revolution?

Food Revolution is a daytime summer program for youth ages 7-11 to explore cooking, science, and the connections between them! The program features fun STEM activities, guest speakers, outdoor team games, kitchen and food safety experiences, and of course lots of delicious and healthy food that we make ourselves!
