The chefs from Food for Thought Learning Institute are trying to get people to do what their name says – think about the food they’re eating.
“Our goal is to reintroduce the lost art of family cooking,” said Chef Matthew Joplin, Director and co-Founder of Food for Thought. “A lot of children are growing up in households where nobody cooks at all. Hopefully we are exciting kids to get them to want to cook themselves.”
Families are encouraged to “Dig in to Dinner” when they check out the group’s appearance at the Moore Public Library at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 24, together, as it will feature something for all ages. The chefs will give children an easy snack they can put together, something like combining a few easy ingredients to make a tasty quesadilla.
Space is limited so registration in advance is asked, either in person at the library or by calling 793-5100.
This year’s Summer Reading Program is presented with the support of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma Arts Council, Hitachi Computer Products of America, The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Sonic, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, the Pioneer Library System Foundation and Friends of the Library groups throughout the Pioneer Library System.
