Welcome to Summer Meals 4 Kids (you can call us SM4K for short — waaay easier), a project proudly presented by the ever-awesome Seacoast Family Food Pantry.
SM4K is about kids learning to love to cook. All summer long SM4K will showcase kid-friendly cooking videos, healthy and delish recipes, and cooking and fitness challenges (with prizes, of course). Over at SM4K we believe that learning to cook (and we mean really cook, you know, like with real food and fresh ingredients) will change your life, and we want to inspire that healthy change.
To launch an awesome SM4K 2014, we have collaborated with some hip and creative Seacoast kids to create a Cook It Up™ kit you’re going to love. In addition to including a few culinary staples (olive oil, a chopping mat, a heat-safe ramekin, etc.), it has a fun summer-inspired design. Best of all, if you buy one Cook It Up™ kit, Seacoast Family Food Pantry will donate another Cook It Up™ kit to a Seacoast family in need.
We hope that you will share your culinary creations with us and all of the other SM4K cooks! You can share photos of your creations, new recipe ideas, and other cooking tips on our Facebook page (for you younger folks, be sure to ask your parents!) or by emailing us.
One more thing. SM4K is for all kids in the greater Seacoast area. We know that you don’t all have wheels, and we know that you might need some help getting your hands on ingredients so that you can cook all the yumm-o SM4K recipes. Luckily, Seacoast Family Food Pantry is as excited about you learning to cook as we are and they have offered to help out. Be sure to check out the Free Meals page to learn more.
Summer will be here soon, and we hope you will join us for SM4K 2014!
