Let's Grow Akron presents a spring cooking demonstration hosted by Kenmore Branch Library. Zoom participation with a local chef. Food kits are available for the first ten registrants.

Register online, in person, or by phone at 330.643.4650.

This program, with a local chef, will be presented online in Zoom.

In this ongoing series, local chefs will prepare a budget-friendly, seasonal dish with fresh produce available at the Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmers' 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, therefore, more affordable at grocery stores or farmers' markets. Local produce is harvested closer to ripeness and travels a shorter distance from the farm to the grocery store, retaining more nutrients and reducing environmental impact. 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 Farmers' Market, and local farmers' market nutrition incentive programs.

A login will be sent several days before the event. Please do not share the web link for this program. If someone else is interested in attending, please have them contact the library to register.

A webcam and microphone may be necessary for participation in this interactive event. If you have one or neither of these, your level of participation will be limited.

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.
