- Tuesday January 23rd, 10am – 1:30pm
Are you interested in supporting your young person to be part of meaningful kitchen work? Would you like to have ready to use, healthy, made from scratch soups and other meals available? Would you like your little person or youth to have positive learning experiences that actually ease the workload of supporting a busy family? Welcome to the Soup-er Stars! A parent-child-community cooking group.
The Soup-er Stars is designed and facilitated so that your youth or little person is supported to participate at their fullest capacity, and have learning-filled positive experiences in a commercial kitchen! We will cook a variety of soups together, eat together, and send you home with soup for your freezer. And because paying it forward is important to us, you will also leave with a little extra (free of charge) to share with a neighbour or friend.
Every 4th Tuesday of the month 10am-1:30pm
