Cooking classes to continue

On behalf of local youth, thank you.

The R.E.C. Room is happy to announce the continuation of the FORK Club, free healthy cooking classes for youth, for the 2013-2014 year.  Thanks to generous support from the Homer Foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee and its donors, as well as the Ashley J. Logan and Sheldon Youth to Youth Funds, young people in our community will again be able to participate in this fun, creative and nutritious learning experience in the year ahead.

Last year 45 teens participated in FORK Club, learning how to prepare fresh meals with organic and local ingredients under the direction of volunteer chefs.  Students and volunteers then took the time to sit and enjoy their culinary creations together as a team.

Plans for the second year of FORK Club, which will begin in August, include a baking class hosted at Kathy Kysar’s Fresh Sourdough Express Bakery and an Edible Arts for Youth session with Bunnell Street Arts Center.  

We’re currently looking for more volunteer chefs for the FORK Club. Anyone interested in teaching a one-evening class this year should contact us at the R.E.C. Room. The R.E.C. Room is a program of the Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic and is located on Nielsen Circle next to KBFPC.  To learn more about the R.E.C. Room, call us at 235-OPEN (6736) or visit

Many thanks again to all our kind friends who share our commitment in helping young people take care of their health through participation in safe and fun activities which offer healthy choices.
