A Little Kindness – Cooking for a Cause

Food, we have learned over these many years of cooking camps, is one of the things that brings us all together. It nourishes us, literally feeding our souls and bodies. So what better way to teach our children how to make a positive impact on their world than by having them cook a meal for invited family and friends — especially a meal that will benefit others?

We’re thrilled to feature young cooks (ages 8 to 12) from A Little Yumminess Cooking Camps in a series of magical community fundraising dinners to showcase how our differences truly bring us together. And how kindness can begin in the kitchen.  Each A Little Kindness fundraising dinner will be designed around a different culinary theme and will benefit an organization doing important work here in the Bay Area or around the world.
