Around 100 matches filled the kitchens at the Chopping Block on March 4th, learning to chop, grill, fry and bake. Bigs and Littles prepared and enjoyed a multi-course meal featuring zucchini fritters, quinoa salad, grilled mustard-taragon chicken and gluten free sponge cake. Everyone brought home recipe books including dishes from the day and creative ideas for kid-friendly dinners from Whole Foods.

“This event was perfect for my Big, Luke, and I,” said Little Tyrone. “4 years ago, on one of our first outings, we cooked a big meal together. Ever since, we’ve centered a lot of our outings on trying new restaurants – it’s like a new adventure each time we get to try different foods across neighborhoods in Chicago.”

A special thanks goes to PepsiCo, Nike and Whole Foods for sponsoring this event as a part of our “Get Healthy” initiative. Click here to see an album of photos from the event.
