More than 150 Surrey students have cooked themselves up some tasty kitchen skills this summer.
The students, aged eight to 12, were part of a SuperChefs Cookery for Kids summer camp that provided six weeks of workshops and physical activities.
The workshops, offered in partnership with Surrey Schools, were held at Queen Elizabeth Secondary and Sullivan Heights Secondary.
SuperChefs is a non-profit society created by Dr. Greg Chang in an effort to curb the childhood obesity epidemic by encouraging children to learn healthy and tasty cooking skills.
Surrey-based Fresh St. Market donated ingredients to support the SuperChefs summer program, which was offered to Surrey students free of charge.
"Our students benefit in many ways from the SuperChefs Cookery for Kids summer camp, particularly children and families who are challenged to fund activities or trips over the summer break," says Surrey Board of Education chairperson Shawn Wilson. "It's been wonderful partnering with SuperChefs over the last six years to offer such a great learning experience for children that also happens to be so engaging and entertaining."
