FEAST cooking classes are the heart and soul of the FEAST experience. These classes expose students to the variety of flavors and textures that local, seasonal foods have to offer. FEAST classes are a sensory and social experience, skill based and academic. FEAST manages gardens at three of our partner schools, allowing the FEAST to deepen student connection with their food by experiencing it at its source.
