Kids in the Kitchen at the YMCA

Release your inner chef in our cooking classes or take charge of your health with our nutrition classes and services. Our recreational hands-on cooking classes and workshops offer delicious, locally inspired, healthy food in a social environment. Not only will you walk away with delicious food, but you will walk away with cooking skills as we focus on technique. Nutrition is at the heart of a healthy lifestyle. It affects our energy, our stress, the impact of exercise and our ability to think clearly. But all too many don’t know where to start. Cooking is a necessary skill and The Y is here to help!
