Hey Good Lookin’ Whatcha Got Cookin’?

GiGi’s Playhouse Sacramento kicked off GiGi’s Kitchen this summer for three different age groups- kids 6-12, teens 13-17, and adults 18+! The program surpassed all of our expectations! We had a massive amount of participants completely engaged and eager to come back again!

“I am so sad that GiGi’s Kitchen summer session has ended, BUT I am so grateful for the experience. GiGi’s Playhouse is my favorite place to volunteer!! Making new friends and being able to teach and learn alongside them has been so much fun! Everyone at GiGi’s is so welcoming and accepting and I can’t wait for GiGi’s Kitchen Fall session!”-Claudia (GiGi’s Kitchen Kids/Teen Coordinator)

The GiGi’s Kitchen programs are truly life-changing!! Participants are motivated by their peers as they strive for their personal Best of All in health and wellness! Participants tried new foods and learned valuable skills while gaining confidence in the kitchen and in life.

Our GiGi’s Kitchen programs are designed to emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle and early exposure to practical cooking skills. Under the guidance of program leaders, participants engage in activities designed to promote healthy eating habits, kitchen safety awareness, food preparation skills, self-confidence, and social skills by applying learned skills as they prepare and enjoy a shared meal/snack!

“My social media feed was filled with pictures of cooking and so many words of praise for what this program is doing! I didn’t know how badly we needed to start GiGi’s Kitchen, and how much our participants would learn and grow!”-Kim Cheers (Site Coordinator)

Thank you to all of our Program Leads, participants, and volunteers who made this a truly unforgettable summer!!
