Whole Kids Club Returns!

You asked and we listened. Our Whole Kids Club returns with sessions once on month to help kids discover where their food comes from and how great it feels to eat healthfully. Each month we explore different foods through art projects, store tours, tasting and creating simple recipes. Whole Kids Club is geared toward kids in Kindergarten through grade 3.

Our first session focuses on root vegetables: Move to the Beet

What are root vegetables and how do they grow? How many different kinds are there? We tour our produce department for answers and then highlight some cools way for kids to eat their roots. The class will also create beet chips to take home and create art using beet paint. Please register at customer service to reserve your spot in class.
