Imagine a world in which everyone not only felt empowered to make their own choices about their food, but had the knowledge to make the right ones. At Cook Play Live, we believe this future is possible. Our unique practical skills focused curriculum mixes nutritional guidance and interactive cooking experiences within the realities of a busy life. We educate K-12 students and parents in New York City’s underserved neighborhoods to take control of their health and to be ambassadors of the power of eating well.
We’re building a healthier America one class at a time.
Our six session or eighteen session workshops for K-12 students and their parents are structured around age-appropriate activities, discussions, and interactive demonstrations.
