Dietitians Sharing Passion for Nutrition Education for Children
At Cooking Corps, we are a dedicated non-profit organization eager to bring excitement to learning about nutrition through projects for kids, regardless of age and ability. Each event is tailored to interests of children while giving brief, yet valuable nutrition information.
The mission of the Cooking Corps is to discover, disseminate, and apply knowledge to promote improved food choices, nutritional status, and well-being for children of all ages and abilities.
Who We Are
Our volunteer instructors are dietetic students affiliated with the University of New Haven’s Nutrition and Dietetics Program. These future Registered Dietitians are passionate about nutrition education and would love to teach your group about healthy eating.
We have individualized lesson plans for various groups, such as:
- Kids of All Ages With Learning or Developmental Disabilities
- Elementary Schools
- Youth Sports Teams
- Parents With Preschool and School-Age Children
- Other Non-Profit Organizations
If you want to work with us, feel free to reach out to us! We would be happy to develop a lesson plan that is designed for your group’s needs.
