Take a Cooking Class

We've got great classes, just for kids. All classes are suitable for 5-12 year olds unless otherwise listed. All classes are intended to be drop-off classes, unless otherwise listed, and are signed up for individually. Pre-registration is required for all cooking classes. Here's what's coming up this year. If you see a class you're intersted in marked as "Sold out" please contact us at 612.927.8141 or ani.loizzo@wholefoods.com and we can add you to the waiting list for that class in case there is a cancellation.

Note on Kids Kitchen Camps and Teen Kitchen Challenges Camps: Kids Kitchen Camp, Teen Kitchen Challenge Camps and all other Whole Foods Market cooking classes are each signed up for individually, rather than as a series of classes. Since we have such high demand for our Kids Kitchen Camp classes, there are two sessions of each class per week to give more kids the opportunity to take each class. Therefore, you would sign your kid(s) up for just one class, not both; they are not a two part series.
