What is CookShop for Families?
CookShop for Families is a series of 6 free monthly cooking and nutrition workshops for parents and guardians.
CookShop for Families is the adult version of the CookShop Classroom program being taught to students at Earth School.

No cooking experience required!
These workshop demos will be a great way to add some more yum to your ESPA-supporting cup of coffee, while connecting with other parents and learning some fun and easy recipes that you can make at home with your children.
Now we need YOU to sign up to make CookShop happen!
CookShop and CookShop for Families program is funded by the FoodBank of NYC.  In order for us to receive the funding to make this happen 20-35 parents or guardians have to express interest in attending the workshop/demos at dates above.   So basically, you adding your name to the list here ensures that we have enough noshes for the CookShop for Families demos AND ensures that our students get to have CookShop in the classroom.   Pretty easy decision, right?
