Kids in the Kitchen


School’s out!  Summer is a great time to try something new.  Have fun learning how to cook.  Join FARMS’s educator Leslie Wicks for a summer class, meet some new friends and make delicious, healthy food.  All classes will use seasonal local foods.

Leslie Wicks is a local artist and mother. She currently works for FARMS as a food pantry educator which allows her to share her love of local and delicious food. Focusing on dishes that are appealing and healthy for her daughter compliments her work at the local food pantries and the FARMS Community Kitchen.
