Healthy Kids in the Presidio Kitchen
Join us for a special gardening-and-cooking class with Chef Traci Des Jardins designed specifically for elementary school-aged children. In this fun and interactive workshop, Chef Traci and Bon Appétit Manager of Food Education for Children Hannah Schmunk will lead the group on a tour of the El Polin Spring garden, where they’ll see fruits and vegetables growing, harvest ingredients, discuss plant parts, and prepare two healthy recipes to enjoy in a delicious picnic lunch. By learning about the connection between what they eat and their ability to do what they enjoy, children go home with a newfound power to make better choices for their health. The workshop is free, but space is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required. Chef Traci Des Jardins manages three restaurants at the Presidio, in partnership with the Presidio Trust: The Commissary, Arguello, and TRANSIT.
