Mission Statement: 

Cooking with Kids' mission is to motivate and empower children to make healthy food choices through hands-on learning with fresh, affordable foods from diverse cultural traditions.


Cooking with Kids provides hands-on food and nutrition education programming for over 4,300 pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students in Santa Fe Public Schools. Cooking with Kids offers cooking classes, fruit and vegetable tasting classes, and supports healthy and delicious cafeteria meals. Throughout the school year, children prepare and taste a variety of fresh, affordable foods and learn about making healthy choices.

The objectives of Cooking with Kids are that children will engage in positive sensory experiences with a variety of healthy foods, identify personal food preferences, practice food preparation skills, and learn about cultures of the world.

The Cooking with Kids curriculum is designed for students from kindergarten through sixth grade, and is aligned with New Mexico Public Education Department Content Standards and Benchmarks in the areas of math, science, social studies, language arts, and health education.
