Don't worry...you want the teens in the kitchen and that is a major part of Teen Kitchen. A local nonprofit organization, Teen Kitchen, brings young people into the kitchen to learn to cook delicious and nourishing food. The meals they prepare are delivered free of charge to individuals and families who are in crisis due to a life-threatening illness like cancer. The teens gain skills in cooking healthy food, learn about the impact of their food choices, and are offered an opportunity to build connections through community service.
Since September 2012, we have served over 29,972 meals to families in crisis due to illness, and teens have donated over 3,000 service hours!
It's a pretty cool organization, check them out at: http://www.teenkitchenproject.org/
