CLASSES

With over 350 classes a year, we have something for everyone. We teach teens how to preserve and children how to use a chef’s knife. We host cookbook authors and food truck owners. We teach butchering and food photography. We have an annual conference for SNAP recipients and providers of meals and services to low income Philadelphians.

If you want to learn more about the intersection of food and literacy, there’s a place for you at our table.
