We support School Programs in both Calgary and Edmonton. We believe that teaching kids about basic cooking skills, food, and kitchen safety that we are helping them develop valuable life skills that allow them to grow.
Our Kids Can Cook Program takes place in the Calgary Learning Centre and teaches Grade 5 students:
- basic cooking skills
- kitchen safety in a fun, fully interactive format.
- health and life skills aligned with their school curriculum.
The program also provides teachers with the tools and resources to incorporate healthy living activities into their classrooms.
Our team of chef instructors facilitate an interactive learning experience and group discussions as students rotate through a series of stations. At each learning station, hands-on activities are tied to curriculum and skills development.
Once students are back at school, their experience at the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen can be used in other subjects, too. We love getting letters
(PDF, 144 kb) and other creative projects
(PDF, 164 kb) from students.
We have partnered with Edmonton-based local non-profit E4C to deliver the Young Chefs program to high-needs Edmonton area schools.
