Culinary Kids

California Kids' Cooking Class Provider

Culinary Kids’ founder Bonnie Bachelor is an elementary school teacher-turned kids’ cooking class extraordinaire. In 2008, she opened Culinary Kids in her local community center for its first summer of “cooking camps.” Since then Culinary Kids has grown to eight cities in Orange County and enrolls over 700 young chefs during the summers. They’ve also expanded to include after-school enrichment programs and kids’ birthday parties.

In Culinary Kids’ classes children between the ages of 5 and 13 create theme-based snacks and meals to share with family and friends. Through the core values of teamwork, independence, and learning, the Culinary Kids Vision is to empower children to be lifelong learners by developing confidence through shared experiences and mutual encouragement.

FOLLOW CULIKID

CULIKID

New York City Non-profit

Culikid was founded in 2016 to help individuals of all abilities, including those with special needs, strengthen their social and independent living skills through healthy culinary experiences. Culikid uses cooking as an opportunity for individuals to increase independence, build relationships, practice fine motor and academic skills, and learn how to eat healthier.

The organization started with quarterly popup cooking classes for children with special needs and has since grown to offer classes on a monthly to bi-monthly basis. Culikid also added new programs which include a weekly teen cooking class (Foodie Friends) and a summer cooking camp for children and teens.

Children with diagnoses such as autism may be more likely to avoid foods based on sensory sensitivity or due to valuing their known routines. We’ve seen that after cooking, a child will be more likely to try a new food than if they were served something unfamiliar that they did not help prepare.
