Taking Back the Kitchen!

McKellar Park Central students participate in unique program

McKellar Park Central Public School students are taking back the kitchen! The students are participating in the Take Back the Kitchen program at Our Kids Count. The program is focused on cooking, nutrition and gardening and empowers students in elementary schools to take charge of their health and wellbeing through experiential learning.

“The cooking classes are vegetable focused and emphasized cooking from scratch, trying new foods, and understanding both the personal and social impacts of how we eat,’ says Jo-Anne Giertuga, Principal of McKellar Park Central Public School. “Throughout the program students learn where we get food and then have a chance to get their hands dirty in learning how easy it is to grow your own food.”
