LATHROP – Back from a clam chowder cooking competition in Santa Cruz where they competed in the professional division, the students of Academy’s Culinary Arts class are off to another adventure.

This time, the venue is much closer to home. It’s another challenge sans the adrenaline rush of the chowder showdown. Instead, they will be sharing their culinary experiences and skills with young parents and their young children.

The venue will be Lathrop High School where Jennifer Myers, the instructor for ROP Careers With Children, is holding another workshop as part of the “series of classes” geared for “First Qualified parents and their preschoolers.”

The class is free; however, space is limited, according to Myers who offered the first class in the series a few weeks. The success of that workshop led to the scheduling of another class on Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. until noon.

Lathrop High School students in the ROP Careers with Children “will be giving a presentation to the parents about the importance of getting their children active from a young age as well as the dangers of childhood obesity. They will also be hosting a station where the students can do some fun and active games,” Myers explained.

The Culinary Arts students will conduct the “Mommy and me cooking portion of the class, creating nutritious and hands-on snacks with the kids and their parents,” she added.

Concluded Myers, “our students are really enjoying reaching out to the community and putting the topics covered in class to use with real-life applications that benefit their local community.”
