This program will be presented online in Zoom. A login will be sent several days prior to the event.  

If you do not have an email address, please call 330.643.4650 to learn about how to participate in this program via phone.

Cooking demonstrations will take place at 6 pm on the second Thursday of each month beginning in May and going through October 2021.

Local chef, Dannika Stevenson from Sip.Savor.Soul, will be preparing a budget-friendly, seasonal dish with fresh produce available at the Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmers' Market and/or Let’s Grow Akron Community Farm Market. Details about these markets will be shared at each session and can be found on Let’s Grow Akron’s website: www.letsgrowakron.org

FREE food kits, including the ingredients needed to prepare the monthly seasonal dish, will be made available for pick up at the Kenmore Branch Library for the first 20 people who register.

The theme for this series of classes is local, seasonal eating. The benefits of cooking and eating produce that is grown locally and harvested in season will be emphasized. Seasonal produce is more readily available, and therefore more affordable at the grocery store or farmer’s market. Local produce is harvested closer to ripeness and travels a shorter distance from the farm to the grocery store, retaining more nutrients and reducing the impact on the environment. Purchasing from local growers and producers stimulates and strengthens the local economy. Seasonal produce grown and harvested locally has the best flavor!

Each class will include a 30-minute cooking demonstration plus 15 minutes for Q&A and 15 minutes to share information about Let’s Grow Akron Community Farm Market, Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmers' Market, and local farmers' market nutrition incentive programs.
