Patch Parents Treated to a Cooking Challenge

Posted by on Jun 21, 2013 in Stories from The Patch

On June 21,  Patch Parents were treated to new and exciting program-and a challenge-when volunteers from Yum! Brands took over The Cabbage Patch courtyard. With individual tables set up for each family team, Patch Parents were told they had 45 minutes to cook a healthy meal together with ingredients graciously provided by Yum!.

“So you mean…we really have….to COOK!?” one little boys astonishment at the task made everyone laugh a little.

When the timer was set, each family quickly got to work. All of the ingredients provided represented ingredients families might have at home, and the exercise encouraged families to work as a team while learning more about creating healthy, sustaining meals at home.

The end results were impressive…and delicious.
