Do your kids fall out of our age range? Do you prefer to cook along in your own kitchen? Check out our recipes in our Growing Chefs! at Home catalogue so you can cook along with our Chefs at home!

(Must be 7 years old by the date of the class)

Location:
will be hosted at our new location, The Grove at The Western Fair District, located at 900 King St. We are currently in the process of undergoing renovations in our building, and if that will interfere with these classes, we will move to our 460 King St location and communicate this as early as possible.

Dates & Time:
Dates and times differ month to month.

Pricing:

**Please note, our Monthly Kid’s Cooking Classes will increase by $5 per participant, starting in February. Over the past 3 years, food and labour costs have risen dramatically, while our rates have remained the same. In order to continue to bring you the same great quality of programming you’ve come to expect, it is necessary to increase our prices slightly, in-line with current inflation.As always, we are committed to providing low-cost food education experiences for children and youth. A subsidized price option remains built into the registration form, but if cost still remains a barrier to registration, please contact christy@growingchefsontario.ca to explore further subsidy options.You will also notice a new option on the registration form to donate $5 to our Food Education Subsidy Fund, every little bit you can give helps!

Chef Leaders: Our Education Chef Team: Chef Katherine, Chef Matt, Chef Jordan, Chef Mike, Chef Katie, Chef Justin

Food Allergies:
Our team is highly experienced in managing dietary restrictions. Do not let a dietary concern prevent your child from participating in our programming. Get in contact with our staff team and we’ll do our best to make appropriate accommodations. If a participant has a life-threatening allergy, please read our official Allergen Statement here and let us know if you have any questions.

Cancellations:
Once full payment is received and registration is confirmed, any cancellation must be directly communicated to Growing Chefs! Staff as early as possible. Cancellations made once the program has started will be eligible for refunds on a case by case basis.
