Join Let's Grow Akron for a virtual summer cooking demonstration. Food kits are available for the first ten registrants. Register online, in person, or by phone at 330.745.6126.

This program, with local Chef Jennifer Tidwell of Jenuine Cuisines, will be presented on Zoom.

In this ongoing series, local chefs will prepare a budget-friendly, seasonal dish with fresh produce available at the Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmer’s Market and/or Let’s Grow Akron Community Farm Market. Details about these markets will be shared at each session and found on Let’s Grow Akron’s website: www.letsgrowakron.org.

FREE Food kits, including the ingredients needed to prepare the seasonal dish, will be available for pick up at the Kenmore Branch Library for the first ten people to register.

The theme for this series of classes is local, seasonal eating. The benefits of cooking and eating produce grown locally and harvested in season will be emphasized. Seasonal produce is more readily available and more affordable at the grocery store or farmer’s market. Local produce is harvested closer to ripeness and travels a shorter distance from the farm to the grocery store, retaining more nutrients and reducing its impact on the environment. Purchasing from local growers and producers stimulates and strengthens the local economy. Seasonal produce grown and harvested locally has the best flavor!

Each class will include a 30-minute cooking demonstration plus 15 minutes for Q&A and 15 minutes to share information about Let’s Grow Akron Community Farm Market, Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmer's Market, and local farmer’s market nutrition incentive programs.

If you do not have an email address, please contact the Kenmore Branch at 330.643.4650 to learn how to participate in this program via phone.
