The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo is excited to partner with ProMedica to engage individuals with Down syndrome in learning basic cooking and kitchen skills, as well as an emphasis on nutrition, in this 6 week course!
Individuals with Down syndrome will learn how to shop for and prepare delicious, healthy meals and snacks on a budget, while interacting with typical peers.
ALL participants will also receive free groceries each week, so they can make the same meal at home!
This course is free to those who register. However, we do ask that those who sign up do their best to verify an active participation. ProMedica asks that each participant attends at least 4 of the 6 scheduled sessions.
*Class enrollment max: 10 individuals with Down syndrome (first come, first served until all spots are filled). The first 10 registrants will be notified of their spots; additional registrants will be notified that they will be placed on the waitlist in the event a registered participant drops out. Once registered, please contact Renee (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive all enrollment waivers that must be completed prior to the first session on January 7.
*Age group: 16 and up. Please note that we are starting with this age group, with the possibility of adding in younger teens for future cooking group sessions.
*We strongly prefer (and ask) that parents do not sit in/observe the class sessions. One of the goals is to foster independence for individuals with Down syndrome.
