Kids Cook Classroom Lunch

Pot Luck


August 14th

5:00 p.m.
8:00 p.m.



It's August and time to gather around the table for our Kids Cook Classroom Picnic and Pie Auction. Join us in Loring Schoolyard Garden on Sunday, August 14th at 5:00. In the garden you'll meet the cooks and gardeners that have harvested sun-ripened fruits and vegetables from the vines. These children have learned to make simple lunches with herbs, fruits and flowers that are growing in the schoolyard garden. We made pesto from spinach, basil and mint, and ribbon salad from zucchini. We pulled rhubarb to make rhubarb berry popsicles. We picked berries and cherries for jams.


This summer Kids Cook Classroom invited parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to our program. Children helped teach their parents how to make simple recipes for breakfast and lunch. Parents saw their children harvesting, cooking and eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables from our garden and orchard.


On Sunday children will harvest tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant from the garden to make wood-fired pizzas. Families will bring Kids Cook Classroom recipes that they have learned to make and we'll prepare pulled pork and relishes.


For Dessert you'll buy a slice of pie. Each of these pies has been made with bowls of berries!
