Kids are more likely to try a new food when they have cooked it themselves. And this fun, interactive class will have them asking to help in the kitchen.

Youth, grades 4th - 6th, will learn interesting nutrition tips, food safety, and valuable cooking skills. 

We're excited this year to introduce a new afterschool special interest 4-H club, led by Kris Juelfs, a local dietitian.

Classes will be held at the Monroe County Annex building - 901 Illinois Ave., Waterloo from 3:30-5:30 pm

the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in September, October and November.


The $60.00 registration includes food, supplies and a t-shirt. 

Limited to 20 participants - REGISTER TODAY!
