Education (Food to Know)

Cooking-class-smallEverything we do is built on education. Learning happens differently in our various programs. It could be cooking tips from local vegetable growers at the farmers markets; trying new recipes in the kitchen during our cooking classes; working alongside lifelong gardeners in the community garden and watching how they design and manage a small space of plants; and the conversations we have when serving and eating with our neighbors.

We have compiled some resources on favorite food related movies and books, as well as food related courses offered here at Augsburg. You can view these here!

Please follow the pages’ link to learn more about the meals we serve, the schedule of the farmers markets, and how to get involved with the community garden. During the 2014-2015 school year, we are offering cooking classes to Augsburg College students on campus, ¬†Sundays 6-8pm in the Augsburg Central Kitchen (top floor of Christensen). Check out our volunteer calendar to see when classes are offered, and¬† sign up here when you can make it to a class.

We also provide education to youth at Brian Coyle Community Center during the summer. Campus Kitchen staff and Augsburg students teach youth grades 1-8 about healthy cooking and gardening skills.
