Kids in the Kitchen
Thanks to the generous support of Mayo Clinic Health System, Kids in the Kitchen has been teaching 4th graders in the Eau Claire Area School District about healthy cooking since 2013. The program is a fully funded field trip program designed to encourage kids to make healthy food choices. During the school day 4th graders travel to the Greater Chippewa Valley Boys and Girls Club for a day of chopping, tasting, prepping, and learning their way around the kitchen. We also have fun with Zumba and learning about the benefits of composting. We end our morning by enjoying the meal we prepared together.

We need your help
For the last 5 years Kids in the Kitchen has been free to the Eau Claire Area School District 4th grade classes and we would like to keep it that way. Due to the generous support of Mayo Clinic Health System the program has grown to serve all 13 elementary schools. As the program grows so do our funding needs. Our goal for the 2018-2019 school year is to raise an additional $7000. That, with the funding from Mayo Clinic Health System, will secure another year of free program.
