SO Fresh offers Kids Holiday Cooking Class

So Fresh cooking classBy MELINDA WILLIAMS



Looking for some cooking assistance this holiday season?

An upcoming “hands-on” class offered by Southwest Virginia Fresh (SO Fresh) can teach your kids how to help.

SO Fresh is teaming up with the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) program at Dublin Middle School to sponsor a Kids Holiday Cooking Class Thursday, Dec. 12. The 4-7 p.m. class is open to fifth and eighth grade students from all schools. It’s being held in the Family and Consumer Sciences Room (Room 225) at DMS.

Certified public school teachers and food safety technicians, assisted by FCCLA members and SO Fresh volunteers, will teach participants how to make three recipes from scratch. Children can take home some of their baked goods.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required by Dec. 10. Parents should call 643-0615 or email rperry@pcva.us to register their children or receive additional information. An $8 class fee includes dinner and a take-home goodie box.

SO Fresh is an all-volunteer, independent community service association devoted to bringing consumers, producers, and other local foods organizations together. The group actively promotes Southwest Virginia’s local foods economy through education, marketing and networking.
