Cook + Connect After-School Program 

Our FREE after-school program, Cook+Connect, specially designed for 8th & 9th graders in the Bronx and Harlem, offers a unique blend of food education and family bonding. At the start of the school year, each participant receives a comprehensive kitchen starter kit. Every week, fresh, high-quality groceries are delivered to their doorstep. These ingredients become the foundation for our interactive online cooking sessions where students, under the guidance of professional chefs, learn to prepare delicious meals for their families. These sessions do more than teach cooking; they foster family connections and ease mealtime stress. The program extends beyond the kitchen with engaging field trips to local kitchens, markets, and community spaces, further strengthening community ties. The application period opens in September and the program runs through the duration of the school year. Interested in being notified when the applications open? Fill out this form to stay in touch!
