Let’s Grow Akron and Akron Public Library partner with Local Chefs to offer free Seasonal Cooking Workshops on the Second Thursday of each month. Zoom participation is unlimited. Food kits are made available at Kenmore and V. Odom Branch Libraries to the first 20 people to register. All who register will receive an email from the library with a recipe and Zoom link for the program several days prior to the event.

Seasonal Cooking Workshops highlight the benefits of cooking and eating produce that is grown locally and harvested in season. Seasonal produce is more readily available, and therefore more affordable at the grocery store or farmer’s markets. Local produce is harvested closer to ripeness and travels a shorter distance from the farm to the grocery store, retaining more nutrients and reducing the impact on the environment. Purchasing from local growers and producers stimulates and strengthens the local economy. Seasonal produce grown and harvested locally has the best flavor!

Each class includes a cooking demonstration, time for Q&A and information shared about Let’s Grow Akron Community Farm MarketSummit Lake Neighborhood Farmers’ Market, and local farmers’ market nutrition incentives.
