Free Cooking Workshops for ‘Little Chefs of CKL’

By Lindsay Advocate

Calling all budding chefs — Community Care and the local Health Unit are looking for you, to participate in free cooking workshops being offered this summer in several locations.

The Little Chefs of CKL program returns this year, presented by the Community Care Health & Care Network and the HKPR District Health Unit. The Little Chefs program has also been generously supported by the Optimist Club of Lindsay.

Little Chefs offers youth ages 6 to 12 a hands-on cooking experience in a supervised setting. Participants will learn cooking skills, enjoy a homemade healthy lunch and snacks, and take home a culinary creation to share.

Each workshop runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on the following dates and locations:

Tuesday, July 23 – Salvation Army, Lindsay

Thursday, July 25 – Salvaton Army, Lindsay

Tuesday, July 30 – Dunsford United Church

Thursday, Aug. 8 – Woodville Community Presbyterian Church

Tuesday, Aug. 13 – Bethany United Church

Thursday, Aug. 15- Little Britain United Church

To register or to get further information about any of the free Little Chefs workshops, contact Community Care’s Community Health Centre at 705-879-4100 (press 1). Spaces are limited.
