Creativity Shell Rochester teaches children about diversity through International Creativity Cooks – Cooking Program!
In their continuing effort to find creative ways to educate and inspire the next generation of makers, the Creativity Shell Rochester is launching a Creativity Cooks International– at home cooking program for kids!
The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. The organization teaches sewing/textile arts, cooking, designing and other creative classes to students in public libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking. Their classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
Launched in Houston at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Creativity Cooks is a meal delivery program that delivers ingredients and recipes to children at their homes. Recipes are written in a format that is easy for children to follow and fantastic for children to create a home cooked meal for themselves and replicate it for their families.
“One of the best elements of Creativity Cooks is the children do not know what meal they are receiving, it’s a surprise!” says Shelancia Daniel who is the creative director of the Creativity Shell. “Each week students wait to receive their packages and are so excited to open it to see what’s inside.”
The International twist for Creativity Cooks is also the organizations way of teaching children about different races and different cultures. “I think food is one of those things that bring people together and if we can teach our children to accept each other and accept our differences, food is definitely a great place to start.” Says Daniel.
Creativity Cooks International will start on Friday, July 10, 2020 and will last for 4 weeks. The cost of the program is $50/student and it covers all materials, supplies and delivery. To register your child, please click here:
