In the GrOW kitchen, wellness begins with learning about kitchen safety and important cooking skills. Students begin their culinary journey by learning safe practices for how to use kitchen knives, how to work appliances and how to work with the oven so they are prepared to create delicious recipes.

Using the state-of-the-art school kitchen and mobile cooking stations, students experiment with cooking and tasting new recipes, often using ingredients grown in the school garden. Now, you can too! Take a look at these GrOW recipes to try at home with your family!
