From The Kitchen

Culinary Education

North Valley Food Bank's kitchen is a site for culinary adventures for youth ages 3-18. Through engaging, fun, and safe cooking classes and nutrition education, we are committed to nourishing our youngest community members and inspiring lifelong cooking skills.

All programming is free. 

Junior Chef Summer Camp

From June 28- August 2, North Valley Food Bank will host a summer camp for Junior Chefs. Held on Friday afternoons through the summer, participants ages 3-11 will be invited to join us for hands-on cooking and nutrition education. Participants will learn how to transform fresh fruits and veggies into healthy meals and snacks, and Junior Chefs will be empowered through learning knife skills, food safety, how to read recipes, and measure ingredients. 

Culinary Workshops

North Valley Food Bank is dedicated to serving youth in the Flathead Valley through culinary education. Our classes teach participants how to prepare healthy, low-cost meals to nourish themselves and their families. We partner with area school districts and nonprofits to offer cooking workshops at our commercial kitchen here at the food bank. We also travel to different partner organizations to offer pop-up cooking workshops.

Meals For Moms

North Valley Food Bank is partnering with the Postpartum Resource Group and other local clinics, to provide nutrient-dense meals for new moms as they heal and navigate motherhood with their growing families. The meals will be available in the store or for distribution to area gatherings such as Baby Bistro, The Circle, and even to the Birthing Center to help families get settled after they leave the hospital. We will also host workshops for moms and their support teams to learn about quick food preparation without sacrificing nutrition.
