Private Classes

We offer private cooking classes in either a demonstration or hands-on style. These classes are a great way to bring your group together in a team-building experience while encouraging participants to try new foods and choose healthier options. Recipes featured are from The Happy Kitchen, and feature local, seasonal produce and ethically-raised meats. Participants will experience SFC's mission in action and will learn about how to get involved.
