Freshmade NYC aims to educate students about making smarter food choices by encouraging them to think about what they eat, where it comes from, how to prepare it, and how to share it! Each week all of the classes will focus on a specific theme and students will be provided with recipes and take-home assignments to share with their families that focus on a particular ingredient that was used during the lesson.Classes are designed to be fun, creative, educational, and always healthy. In “Brunch and Munch” students will create yummy smoothies, savory quick breads, and Korean vegetable pancakes. Need a boost? Join “After School Pick-Me-Up”, where children will learn recipes they can do themselves at home with little to no assistance, pleasing their bellies and their sense of independence. “Palette-Palate” is an arts and crafts class that incorporates every day food items and household supplies.

-literacy from the practical (food labels) to the fantastic (story time)
-math and measurement
-fine motor skills (cutting, chopping, rolling and pouring)
-taste and nutrition
-social skills (listening, following directions, independence, sharing and friendship)
-culture and community (where does food come from, how do we obtain it and what do we do with it
