Central West – Virtual Youth Cooking Program (ages 8-17)
Youth with ASD, ages 8 to 17, across the Central West region (Hamilton, Halton, Peel, Waterloo, and Wellington) are invited to join our 5-weeks of cooking classes. They will advance their culinary skills and try new foods with this program led by Chef Anthony Go, a graduate of George Brown Chef School and an adult with ASD.
This program will be supported by volunteers from Big Spoon Lil Spoon (BSLS) McMaster & Mississauga Chapters, student-run organizations that help teach children life skills along with mentorship. BSLS volunteers will be virtually present to engage with participants while they cook. For safety reasons, caregivers are required to always be present participants during the sessions.
Each week will feature a new recipe including soup, bread, corn muffins, pasta, and salad! Once the recipes and ingredients are shared, Chef Anthony will be able to assist participants with questions about dietary restrictions.
PLEASE NOTE: families are responsible for purchasing their own ingredients BEFORE the Sunday weekly cooking session.
