Youth Adventures in Food

without comments

After lovingly and thoughtfully preparing my kid’s school lunches every day I am always disappointed when they are returned to me mostly uneaten. I don’t want to cave in and pack salt and fat laden pre-prepared foods, but I want them to eat. So, when I saw the advertisement for Youth Adventures in Food (Homegrown Fort Collins) I knew that this could be my chance to improve the lunch experience for all.

Youth Adventures in Food will take place on September 18 and is open to all aged 5 and up. Join BEET Street and local chef Scott Hapner (aka Chef Happy) in an interactive and fun cooking class that plans to teach you “to prepare healthy, locally sourced, and fun lunch box foods”.

Scott Hapner is the owner of Happy’s Gourmet, a local business that offers personal chef services, local food connection consulting and local food business assistance. He has over 17 years of experience in the food and beverage industry and over 10 years experience with the local food community in Northern Colorado.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchase through BEET Street. The cooking class will be held from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Legacy Park during the sustainable living fair. The price of the ticket includes the cooking class, meal, and a drink.

So, if you stuck in a rut trying to think of new, healthy, and interesting school lunches that your kids will actually eat and enjoy check it out! I plan to be there and I’m bringing my kids. See you there!
