Cooking for kids is a great life lesson for self-reliance. The Girls Inc. organization in Sarasota recognizes that cooking is a necessary life skill, and offers great classes for the girls who participate in the organization. Girls Inc. is an organization for girls in K-8th grade. There are many opportunities to learn self-reliance skills, and the cooking classes are very popular.

The Junior League of Sarasota has partnered with Girls Inc. to provide a nutrition and cooking program in the after-school program. The Menu for Nutrition program offers opportunities for the girls and their families to learn about healthy eating and cooking. The Junior League recently gave a $2000 donation to Girls Inc. for 2013-2014 to continue the Menu for Nutrition program.

Girls Inc. also partners with local farmers in the Sarasota area to obtain fresh produce for the cooking and nutrition classes. Partnership with the Junior League has also given the girls the opportunity to grow and maintain a sustainable garden for their cooking and nutrition classes. The sustainable garden will allow the girls to grow vegetables and serve fresh produce regularly.
