Take Back The Kitchen (TBK) cooking classes empower teens to take charge of their health and well-being through hands-on cooking classes.
Haley House’s Take Back the Kitchen (TBK) is a cooking and nutrition program that promotes the joy and health benefits of cooking food from scratch. Our curriculum emphasizes using whole foods, trying new things, and understanding the personal, environmental, and social impacts of how we eat. Whenever possible, we use produce from Haley House’s own farm.
Our approach is hands-on. Classes are taught by passionate, experienced chef-educators. During each class, students learn basic cooking techniques, nutrition essentials, kitchen safety, and knife skills. Simultaneously, students prepare a meal to be shared at the end of the class, while reflecting on their experiences that day.
Our classes provide students with life skills and food information that will help them navigate the increasingly complex and confusing world of food, nutrition, and health. They also examine how their food choices affect the health of their bodies, their communities, and the environment.
