Each station will have portioned out ingredients for the class; individual pots, bowls, measuring equipment, knives, cutting boards and any other equipment needed for the recipe; designated stove/oven use; hand sanitizer; and cleaning supplies to enhance practices.Upon arrival to the kitchen, participants will be asked health screening questions and must wear a mask as per Bylaw 6269.Due to the limited space and COVID 19 restrictions we will take a graduated approach to integrating onsite classes with our virtual classes

    Phase 1: offer one onsite adult cooking class for 4 individuals.
    Phase 2: offer the adult cooking class to parents with children who already have built a cohort so that child care can be provided onsite (mid to late October).
    Phase 3: offer additional onsite cooking classes (late October/November).
    Phase 4: offer individuals with support workers class time (November/December).
