Presenters Denise with Lyles Station (Legacy Taste of the Garden) and Maria with Urban Seeds will teach youth how to prepare a recipe while connecting them to the local food system. We encourage you to prepare a dish to share with family and start a dialogue about the cooking tradition in your family.

Ingredients will be available for pick up from the chosen library location between 1pm-5pm the day before the virtual session.
