YMCA Buffalo Niagara’s “Y on the Fly” program will be partnering with FeedMore WNY for “Kids in the Kitchen,” a hands-on education program with children in Buffalo.
The education program will take place at the Resource Council of WNY (347 E. Ferry St., Buffalo) from 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 12. Children will learn about a food group, then create a delicious snack. Thanks to FeedMore WNY, they will then receive ingredients to recreate the recipe at home.
The YMCA will provide a free lunch to members of the community who attend this event.
