Bella Cuisine Kids Cooking Club

Chicago,

The Bella Cuisine Kids Cooking Club is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization based in Chicago, IL. Our mission is to teach and encourage children to make healthy eating a part of their daily lives and to combat childhood obesity within the community by encouraging families to cook from scratch and decrease food related health issues. The Bella Cuisine Kids Cooking Club’s philosophy is based upon the belief that we must prevent the obesity epidemic and not just treat the symptoms. Our target audience is at-risk and underserved youth and is based upon a simple formula of providing our programs and resources to lower socio-economic populations in geographic locales where the resources are fewest and the need the greatest. The Bella Cuisine Kids Cooking Club is offered as in-school and after-school program for children ages 6-17. Throughout the school year and summer, students are provided a healthy meal or snack that they learn to prepare themselves. This keeps students productively engaged and in a safe environment during after school hours. Our program is mobile; we bring the cooking equipment and fresh ingredients right to you!
