Teenagers can cook?

Of course they can. Now the chance for teens to show their skills or to learn more culinary skills at the F.O.R.K Club is going to happen this summer thanks to YAC. The R.E.C. Room and Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic would like to truly thank the Homer Foundations Youth Advisory Committee with funding support from YACs generous donors and the Ashley J. Logan and Sheldon Youth to Youth Funds for providing funding which will allow the popular F.O.R.K. Club to continue.

Through the Fresh and ORganic Club, even more local youth will get the chance to learn about how to make decisions to eat inexpensively and nutritionally from local chefs. This cooking class is hosted at the R.E.C. Room which currently serves as a one-stop resource shop for teens and will now be able to continue to provide youth with the skills to be self-sufficient and healthy through the joy of cooking. If you love to cook and would like to work with teens in the community, please contact the R.E.C. Room.

Our thanks goes out to YAC for making this happen for Homers most valuable assets, our youth.
