Jr. Chef’s Cooking in the Kids’ Kitchen

Send us a photo (or video!) of you and your child making your favorite healthy snack (or one of the Kids’ Kitchen recipes). Each week through the summer we’ll provide participating Jr. Chefs with Sprouts apron sets.

You can help your child by either guiding them to try one of the recipes we’ll post on our Kids’ Kitchen social media pages, or simply photograph your child making his or her favorite dish (or snack!). We only ask that the dish include a few garden fresh veggie or fruit ingredients and have minimal sugar!

Your photos or videos can be submitted by posting to any of our social media channels or emailed to: eleib@keeptbb.org.

Green Apple Day of Service at Turner-Bartels K-8

We are so very excited to announce the roll-out of our brand new mobile Kids’ Kitchen, funded by Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation, on Nov. 3 at the Green Apple Day of Service at Turner-Bartels K-8. On this very special day – a year in the making – TBK8 students, their families, and volunteers with Grace Empire Church, the Patel College and TTF2S will complete the set-up of the 4th grade gardens. Adding to the excitement for the incoming 4th graders, the students will also be treated to a cooking demo by our Kids’ Kitchen intern cooking team. USF student interns will engage young gardeners in a demonstration of how to prepare a simple dish using the same type of vegetables they will grow in their new gardens.

Thanks to Sprouts Foundation, Kids’ Kitchen is helping young gardeners by setting up in the physical space near their gardens to help make the connection between the vegetables they grow and the healthy plant-based dishes they can make at home. During the 2018/19 school year, Kids’ Kitchen “popped up” at the Sweetwater Organic Farmers Market, Tampa Heights Community Garden, Harvest Hope Park Community Garden, University of South Florida Patel College, Muller Elementary, Cork Elementary, and Turner-Bartels K-8 School. is an important goal, fulfilling the TTF2S vision of “Healthy Communities, Seriously Healthy Food.”
