Welcome to Cooking for Real
hands-on cooking and nutrition education
Cooking for Real facilitates the understanding of health and nutrition, utilizing hands-on experiences through the entire cooking process. It is our philosophy that children and adults will develop a healthier relationship with food when they are engaged in the whole process from origin to selection to consumption.
Our mission is to bring people together to increase awareness and understanding of whole food nutrition, the food system and sustainable models for our future. Through this hands-on, experiential process our hope is that our students will grow in knowledge and understanding of the foods they eat from planting to plate, empowering every individual to create life long healthful and sustainable habits.
“Never doubt that a small group
of thoughtful, committed individuals
can change the world,
indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
