Many teens want to eat healthy or learn about nutrition, but don’t know where to start. For this project, Chatham 8th Grader Josie Ivancich, working on her Girl Scout Silver Award in Health and Nutrition, teamed up with Nutrition Specialist Lauren Leonard, CNS. In each class, we will first hear from Ms. Leonard and then get to cook the meal together with Josie. You will learn new life skills of prepping and cooking food – and then enjoy a delicious meal with your family!
The program will be held virtually on Zoom. We will email you the Zoom link before the class. Grades 6 to 8, limit 30 students
