Cook and Grow is a Junior Chef program founded by Chef Mona Jackson in 2009. Students learn kitchen safety, food preparation, cooking, nutrition, and how to be informed consumer by understanding food labels to make better choices. Students also learn about growing, preparing and cooking healthier meals. Our program is designed to address the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and the dramatic increase of childhood obesity. Students will grow some of the fresh vegetables and herbs that they will cook with.
