Students learn to become Food Detectives in our academically-aligned workshop.

We get kids asking questions about what’s in their food and excited about real food and cooking!

The Pure Food Kids Workshop is a no-cost, commercial-free, common-core learning standards-aligned, food education workshop for 4th and 5th grade students in the greater Seattle and New York City metro areas. The program is free to public, private, and home-schools, equipping students with information and skills to make healthy food choices for life.

Our 2.5 hour workshops are fun and interactive:

  • Sparking curiosity about what’s really in the foods kids eat

  • Teaching kids how to read nutrition labels and ingredient lists

  • Raising awareness about how food companies are marketing to kids

  • Kids learn to be chefs, cooking and eating tasty, nourishing veggie chili right in their classrooms!


Unique curriculum, paired with rigorous evaluation and adaptability, allows for maximized learning and inspired change. Knowledge and skills that stay with kids throughout their lives.


Every kid deserves these life skills. 

We are working hard to ensure that every kid has the opportunity.
