Intergenerational workshop offers chance to bake, share and dream together

Family heirlooms aren't always jewelry or furniture. For some, a family recipe is their most precious inheritance. The smell of fresh-baked bread might conjure memories of cooking with a grandparent or sitting around a table with extended family.

Illinois Extension wants to ensure your family has the opportunity to bake, share, and dream together. For the Love of Food and Family is a workshop for grandparents or parents and the children in their lives. On June 13, from 1-3:30 p.m., participants will bake bread from scratch and participate in intergenerational activities on heritage and family dreams while the bread is rising. Homework will involve a family recipe made at home together and shared via social media.

The class is at the Clark County Illinois Extension Office at 15493 N. State Hwy 1 in Marshall. Please register for the program online at by June 10 or call 217-826-5422. The fee for the program is $5 per family. If you need a reasonable request to participate, please contact the Extension Office.
