Cooking workshop for formerly incarcerated fathers and their children coming to Newark in early November
by Vince Baglivo/October 28, 2016
Greater Newark Conservancy will host a cooking workshop as part of its program to help formerly incarcerated fathers and their kids establish strong relationships. The program takes place on Saturday, November 5th from 12 noon till 3:00 p.m. at its Judith L. Shipley Urban Environmental Center, 32 Prince Street (between Springfield and South Orange Avenues.)
Presented with the help of a grant from the National Recreation Foundation, this free program is designed to help the fathers and kids develop positive communication skills, promote family health and wellness and provide a connection to the community.
At an October gathering of the program, the dads and kids harvested basil, chives, and oregano from the Conservancy’s gardens to make a pesto sauce. Everyone worked together as a team–peeling potatoes, dicing peppers, mincing garlic, chopping tomatoes–and enjoyed turkey tacos for lunch before taking home shepherd’s pie for an easy family dinner.
Interested families must complete an application form to participate in the program. Upcoming events include family-focused activities, classes and trips. Contact program coordinator Emmanuela Mujica at 973.642.4646, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register for the Fatherhood N’ Kidz Kafe program.
