Are you looking for a hands-on and educational activity for your kids this summer? 


Fresh Food Weekly is hosting two more ‘Healthy Cooking Summer Workshop for Kids’ fundraisers!


These two-hour workshops will be taught by Mary Dyck, who has spent the last eight years teaching children about eating healthy! 

We’ll teach about the importance of a well-balanced diet and how certain foods affect the body in different ways. Kids will also get to cook their own dinner and dessert, which they can proudly bring home to the family while it’s still warm. All food, supplies and cookware will be provided, and we’ll also have lots of volunteers available to help ensure everyone is getting the most value out of the workshop. 

Mary Dyck, RN

Mary Dyck has been a registered nurse for the past 39 years, spending the majority of her career as a paediatric nurse at Soldier’s Memorial Hospital in Orillia, Ont. Mary is recently retired, spending the last eight years as a certified Bariatric Educator in the Children’s Obesity Clinic at Soldier’s Memorial Hospital, teaching children and their families about eating healthy and developing healthy eating habits. 


Mary is a passionate advocate for healthy living and is excited for the opportunity to use her wealth of knowledge to help kids gain valuable hands-on cooking skills with Fresh Food Weekly’s Healthy Cooking Summer Workshops for Kids.
