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.

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. This summer we are offering cooking classes to Augsburg College students on campus, ┬áMondays 7-9pm in the Augsburg Central Kitchen (top floor of Christensen). To see which days are open go to our volunteer calendar, and once you confirm that there’s still space in the shift that you’re interested in, sign up here.

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 twice a week.
