Update: Children participating on March 4 will learn how to make their own Waffle Bites.
Kroger’s Atlanta Division has launched its Chef Junior program and the Kroger store in Loganville, at 4753 Atlanta Highway, is participating in this program. The initiative, which is hosted through 20 stores throughout Georgia, is aimed at developing the culinary talents of its youngest shoppers.
According to a press release, this includes a 20-minute workshop under the personal guidance of a Kroger Chef. The children in attendance learn to create tasty food items and learn culinary skills such as cupcake decorating and creating fruit pizza. As part of every experience, children receive Kroger Chef Junior items, including an apron, chef’s hat, recipe box, a cooking utensil and a patch. Each junior chef takes home a recipe card with step-by-step instructions to continue the experience at home with a made-from-scratch recipe. Kroger Chef Junior workshops are recommended for children ages 4-10 years old, but all are welcome.
The cost to register is $7 and the first event is this Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017 where the young chefs will learn how to make a lettuce wrap. You can sign the child up for this as well as future events at www.kcj.eventbrite.com.
“Nutritional education begins at a young age,” Glynn Jenkins, public relations director for Kroger’s Atlanta Division said in the press release. “Kroger is committed to fostering a life-long love of cooking for our young shoppers, and the Chef Junior program is just one tangible example of the many ways we proudly support the communities we serve.”
