Boys & Girls Club of San Antonio / Mays Family Clubhouse
The CHEF Kitchen at the Mays Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio (BGCSA) is at the forefront of implementing the CHEF Bites curriculum to youth from the Lone Star neighborhood and surrounding community. The CHEF curriculum is one component of the Health & Life Skills core program area of BGCSA.
Throughout the summer of 2017, over 200 BGCSA club members have explored cuisines of the world while learning nutrition and culinary skills from the CHEF Bites curriculum.
The teaching kitchen features three kitchen islands with low counter tops suited to the children, plus a wide range of child-friendly cooking tools. In addition to the kitchen, a companion teaching garden is being planned for the enjoyment and education of class participants. In July, the kitchen was featured in the SA Express News’ article, “Program teaches children to cook—and eat—well.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of SA plans to begin offering CHEF classes to older community members during the 2017-2018 school year.
