Slow Cookers for Kids was designed to address food illiteracy – a problem that is faced by many members of the Kingston community and beyond. By focusing on affordable “superfoods” like millet, lentils and legumes, we introduce nutrition and cooking techniques to students in a fully hands-on, interactive experience. Our Head Chef, Thomas Elia, leads the instruction and familiarizes the students with low cost, high nutrition meals that are both delicious and versatile. Over the course of this free program, the students are engaged in preparing and cooking three meals using slow cookers using recipes from our cookbook. At the end of the sessions, the students are sent home with a copy of “Recipes for an Empty Wallet”, a slow cooker, and the dry ingredients required to make some of the featured recipes for their families.
