Sticky Fingers Cooking classes benefit the students who participate, and the school community as a whole, in a few ways.  We strive to provide comprehensive education and inspiration directly related to the role of real foods, cooking, and nutrition in promoting health and wellness.  Sticky Fingers Cooking is an interdisciplinary class where students practice cooking skills while learning cultural, nutritional, linguistic, and geographical information about foods from around the world.  Meanwhile, students are also practicing math skills, seeing scientific concepts at work, and developing an environmental awareness of where real food comes from.  Students are able to transfer what they’ve learned in Sticky Fingers Cooking classes to their lives outside of cooking class through take home recipes, application of newly learned cooking skills, as well as enthusiasm and an expanded palate for new foods.  Lastly, students take pride in the hard work they have put into the tasty food they have created!  Participating in Sticky Fingers Cooking classes helps build independence, persistence, and confidence in students as they work to create meals each week, skills which benefit students both in the classroom and at home.
