Lunch Box Event for Kids at King Farmers Market

Portland’s Grace Kuto, philanthropic author, renowned cook, and passionate educator, will help host the “Local Lunch Box,” an educational event filled with activities intended to encourage kids to make healthy, seasonal, local food choices. Kuto will do a cooking demonstration at noon and be on hand to sell and sign her cookbook, Harambee.
School-aged participants can take part in a market scavenger hunt to learn more about good versus bad food choices, learn about a day in the life of a farmer and experience fresh and/or new fruits and veggies. Other planned activities include a drop-in cooking class for children of all ages, nutrition bingo, make-your-own lunch box, and a blind box produce game where children can identify fruits and veggies based on touch and smell.

10 am to 2 pm, Sunday, September 12 at the King Farmers Market, NE 7th and Wygant. Contact Amy Hunter for more information: ahunter@leeweinstein.biz, (503) 927-5872

Portland Farmers Market is generously supported by the Art Institute of Portland and COUNTRY Financial as season sponsors.
