Community Support Day for the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy’s Farm to Childcare Program

Whole Foods Market St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Minnetonka

Thursday, June 6th

 

Stock up and shop for a cause during our Community Support Day at Whole Foods Market St. Paul, Minnetonka , and Minneapolis locations. On Thursday, March 6th, we'll donate 5% of our sales to the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. The money raised will go towards their new program, Farm to Childcare.  The goal of this initiative is to bring fresh, locally grown product to children in daycare throughout Minnesota.  This project builds on IATP’s widely-recognized leadership in building Minnesota’s Farm to School movement, and focuses on the early childhood years when life-long taste preferences and eating habits are at their most formative.

Taste Bud Travels: Paella Party
Friday, September 19th
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Spain is home to some of the most soulful and satisfying seafood dishes in the world. Sometimes a dainty tapas plate of garlic shrimp will hit the spot, but if you want a party, it’s time to grab the biggest pan you have, visit your fishmonger, and learn how to build a great paella. Paella is a marriage of seafood, rice, vegetables and aromatic saffron that is flavorful, exciting and endlessly adaptable. Learn how to choose the right ingredients and cook each ingredient to perfection while melding them together into a vibrant one pot meal perfect for get togethers. While our paella simmers, we’ll snack on some of Spain’s favorite tapas that complement the sweet and savory characteristics of paella.

The Whole Kids Club presents...Mastering the Muffin Tin
Saturday, September 20th
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $5 per Whole Kids Club member, $8 per non-member

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Muffin tins are pretty cool kitchen tools! We can use them, of course, to make muffins and cupcakes, but they can do so much more! We’ll think outside the muffin and create three dishes that we bake in a muffin tin...but there won’t be a muffin in sight. You’ll learn how to make pizza muffins, salad muffins and muffin tin pies with fresh fruit, and Chef Ani will read you Laura Numeroff’s tale of what happens when you give a moose a muffin, too. This class is hands on.  Vegetarian options are available (please specify upon registration). Classes are suitable for kids 5-14, and are drop off classes- kids only please! Pre-registration is required.
