Youth-Led Cooking Demo with Foodwise Teens

Saturday, April 29, 2023, 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo led by students from our Foodwise Teens program, featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Join Mission High School students James, Rogelyn, and Hiero for a pasta making demo.

Foodwise Teens is a paid youth development program where teens become change agents for a sustainable, equitable, and nourishing food future. Through hands-on experiences in the garden, in the kitchen, and at the farmers market, students learn about food justice, develop important life and job skills, and build community together. Foodwise Teens offers participants multiple opportunities to nurture their health and wellbeing, build leadership and stewardship, and explore careers in their food community. 

All demos take place in the Foodwise Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
