February 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Sweetwater Union School District Middle and High School students and parents/guardians are invited to register for an 8 session, twice-monthly, virtual cooking class. This program is free and provided by the Chefs de Cuisine Education Foundation and includes the necessary ingredients and tools to participate in each session.

The course includes healthy, kid-friendly recipes and mini-lessons on sanitation, cleanliness, portion size, nutrition labels, cross contamination, reducing levels of salt, fats, sugar and processed foods, the use of herbs and spices, and healthy snacking.


Parents/guardians will receive an online permission forms and must agree to pick up food items at a designated distribution point in their area. The Foundation has developed a partnership with the Suncoast Market Co-op, the Chula Vista Police Activities League and the Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center to coordinate distribution.

Video Portfolios

After school program coordinators maintain a video portfolio of items prepared and complete online worksheets on nutrition and healthy eating. After School program coordinators at each of the 12 schools involved in the initial program phase monitor the portfolio progress and share data with the Foundation. Finished portfolios are required for program completion certificates.


An online competition will be held at the end of the school year for students to exhibit preparation and presentation skills. Winners will be featured in videos for future classes.

If you are interested in participating, message us for your application! Program starts in February!
