After School Programming
The Children’s Food Lab offers its after school programming to schools throughout Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. We bring our food arts and sciences education to students after their school day ends. (12 - 14 students; 1 - 1.5 hours/lesson)

The Children’s Food Lab brings food literacy to young people and nurtures their academic and creative potentials through interactive, hands-on learning. The Children’s Food Lab strives to create a captivating and singular environment in which children of all ages, abilities, and experiences can freely learn about and explore all things food, including the environment and the health of their bodies.
