This summer, the Southwind Extension District is hosting free cooking classes for kids to learn basic cooking and baking skills. The classes are for youth that have just completed the second, third, fourth, or fifth grade. This class will be held from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM in Bronson on June 22nd and in Fort Scott on June 29th. Other dates and locations where the class will be held include:

  • June 8 – Erie
  • June 13 – Yates Center
  • June 15 – Humboldt
  • June 20 – Chanute
  • June 27 – Iola

These classes are free, but registration is required at Since this will be a “hands-on” experience, the size of each class is limited and these classes fill up fast. Get your registration in soon!

For more information, contact Nutrition, Food and Health Agent Clara Wicoff at (620) 365-2242 or [email protected]. A grant through the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation helped support the kids’ cooking classes in Bourbon County.
